Community Calendar

Calendar Guidelines Items for Community Calendar must be submitted in writing during regular weekday business hours at least two weeks prior to the day of the event. We will make every effort to run the item twice before the event, though it should be noted all events run in the order of their posted dates and only as space allows. Events more than two weeks away may not run until closer to the event. Each event should feature no more than two contact phone numbers. Community Calendar is offered as a public service bulletin for Jeff Davis Parish community and non-profit events. Send entries to jenn...@bellsouth.net. To publicize your event in a specific way on certain days, call 824-3011 to speak to an advertising representative.
