Hard restart: Calendar submissions

Posted

Close readers of The Bulletin’s news section will notice something missing from the March 27 edition: The Coming Up news-and-events calendar.

The number and scope of cancellations related to Coronavirus, COVID-19 precautions were both overwhelming and a source of community pride.

Clearly, Las Cruces is taking seriously the strategy of social distancing to flatten the curve of infections and restore normalcy to the community as soon as possible.

The calendar will return as new submissions are received and processed into the system.

That’s right, it’s a hard restart. No old calendar items will be reposted or recycled. Only new submissions will be accepted.

The format for submissions going forward is: Day/date – Name of event: time, location, physical address, brief description, free or fee, telephone contact and/or email contact.

For instance, an acceptable submission for a date-specific calendar item will look like this:

Wednesday, March 25 -- Tree Planting for Dummies: 9- 10 a.m., Arbor Station, 322 E. Elm St. Learn how to plant trees with style. Free. Info: 575-555-5555 or rootzilla@guyplantstrees.com

For recurring events, acceptable submissions will look like this:

Hop-scotch lessons: 9- 10 a.m., first Wednesdays, The Hop-Scotch Center, 123 N. Leapfrog Ave. Instructed by Chris Nimblelimbs. $5 adults. Kids free. Info: 575-555-5555 or hopalong@webeleaping.org.

No other formats will be accepted. Submissions must be emailed a minimum of 10 days in advance of the desired publication date. Only Word documents submitted via email will be accepted. Limit 45 words. No PDFs or flyers accepted.

If you are the point of contact for a one-time or recurring community event that is coming up, submit it to jess@lascrucesbulletin.com.

The calendar shall return.
