Add to your event distro list: Wards 7 and 8 Community Calendar

A few years ago, several Ward 7 and 8 residents took action in reaction to poorly-advertised and thus attended community events.   We created the Wards 7 and 8 Community Calendar and two Twitter accounts — @Ward7Outreach and @Ward8Outreach.   The calendar does not replace organizational event lists; rather, it is a way to amplify all that the community has going on.

Calendar coordinators (of which I am one) urge organizations of all kinds ― nonprofits, DC government, federal government, civic associations, loose groups of neighbors ― to submit public event information so that the event can be added to the calendar and promoted on Twitter.   There is absolutely no charge for this.   The calendar is maintained as a public service, from one neighbor to another.

Organizations do not need to have an office in Wards 7 or 8 for their event to be included.   Only the event has to take place #eotr.
