Tips for writing a press release

  • Put your name, address and daytime telephone number at the top of your release. We may need to contact you for more information. Keep your release brief and to the point. A news release about an upcoming event should include when and where the event is being held, the purpose of the event, the sponsor's full name and any registration fees or other requirements.
  • E-mail to one of the email addresses listed above at least seven days in advance. Your item must be in the main body of the e-mail message. Do not send attachments.
  • Mail or bring your release to one of our offices at least seven days in advance. To avoid the chance of error, do not hand write your release, please type or hand print instead.

Submitting calendar items

Every week, schedules of community meetings, concerts, lectures and other events open to the general public are published in the Bulletin. The deadline for submitting your news items for the calendar is Monday at noon of the same week.
