FAQ's about Submitting Community News & Calendar info
FAQ's 1. Who can submit to the Community News & Community calendar page? Ans. Anyone! If your news/event is something that you would have submitted to the Youngsville Area News section in the past, then you should submit your organization's information for this Community Page. -The purpose of this page is to offer an easy "one-stop" location that (a) allows our community members to read the latest news about area events, activities, & other happenings. (b) provides access to a Community Calendar that you can reference for key-dates, upcoming events, fundraisers, and more. (c) helps area organizations as they schedule their own activities by being able to see when other fundraisers and events are going to take place, thus hopefully helping to eliminate too many "duplicate" events on a given date or weekend, etc.
2.How do I submit an article/information for the Community News page? Ans. (a) Email your article/information and photo(s) (in jpeg format) to YPLCommunityCalendar@gmail.com. (b) If you have a website link or contact information (i.e. email, phone) please include it with your submission (the community calendar has a links & contact feature that the public can access).
3. Is there a weekly deadline for submitting articles/information for the Community News page or the Community Calendar? Ans. Each week news/calendar information that is emailed by midnight Monday will be placed on the Community News page & Community Calendar by Thursday of that same week. Emails sent from Tuesday-Sunday will be upload as soon as able. - However, you can send calendar information months in advance of the event date (this also helps other organizations to plan their events and to prevent too many fundraisers occurring on the same date or weekend, etc.). 4.Can I just email you a flier that my organization/church made to promote an event instead of writing something? Ans.Yes! If you already have a flier created that has all the information, please email it. Chances are that the flier can actually be placed on the Community News page in its entirety. So no need to "rewrite" the information in an email, just send what you've already made.
5.Do I have to send something separately if I'd like it to be included on the Community Calendar page? Ans.No.If the article/information that you emailed to YPLCommunityCalendar@gmail.com is also something that can also be placed on the Community Calendar (i.e. a fundraiser, benefit dinner, special church event, etc.) that information will automatically be added to the calendar by a YPL staff member
6. How far ahead can I submit an item for the Community Calendar page? Ans. Items can be submitted up to one year ahead of the event date.
