Family eGuide reserves the right to edit submissions for space (obviously, we’ll include the pertinent facts). That’s why it’s so important to include a link to a site where readers can get additional information.
The Family eGuide community calendar is updated approximately two weeks in advance of event dates. If you’d like to promote your event earlier than this, please contact us about advertising. Additionally, all events are shared in text format, with a small thumbnail image. Larger images, flyers, etc. would also be considered advertising.
