CM Events: Christmas programs are arriving

From years past, we've learned that more than a few people like to plan a schedule of Christmas Programs, using the CM Events calendar, to see as many Christmas plays, musical presentations, and other school and church events as possible.

Christmas Programs and Special Events are already arriving at CM, including some just posted.

If your church, school, or organization in Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell or Taylor Counties of South Central Kentucky is planning a special program, please send the Event announcement as early as possible. If the place, time, day/date, and location (always with Street and Number for venue - events aren't posted without that courtesy) write the Event for CM and, in most cases, have 80% of the publicity needed to draw bigger crowds. Later, a longer story can be submitted, with more details - especially names of those involved - to be linked to the Event.

It's now easier than ever to be an instant internet editor, using the highly popular "1) Copy/Edit, 2) Copy/Send" technique - using your group's recent edited and posted CM Event, or by emulating what other frequent contributors have done.

Click Readmore to see the simple way to be an internet journalist, where Events postings are concerned. If you follow the instructions, and the Event is not posted within 2 business hours, give a call, to 270-250-2730, preferably while you are online and have a pen and notepad handy, and we'll guide you through your next email submission. Events listings are not accepted by telephone, unless there is an emergency.
