Getting Your Events on the Calendars

One of the most important things we can do when planning events to publicize those events so people will know when and where they are. We have two very good locations available to help us get the word out. One is the website.

Julie keeps a calendar of current events on the website. Email the her the flyer and information about you coming events as soon has you have a date, time and venue. The sooner you get the information public, the less likely it is that someone else will plan an event on the same day. Send your event details and photos to Julie at

John and Rachel Pack also have a Facebook group set up JUST for posting events. I have found it easiest to post a new event on my own page or personal profile then share that event with the San Felipe Events group.

Here’s the steps for creating a new event on Facebook.

Once you have created and saved the event you can go back and add a photo to the event. Choose a picture of your event flyer and add it to the event. When you add the location you will often have the opportunity to include a Facebook link to that businesses Facebook page and may get a map automatically linked to the event.

When you click open an event you will also have the option to Share that event. If you Share the event with John and Rachel’s Event group your event will then show up in their San Felipe Calendar of Events on Facebook.

Another resource for calendaring is the Las Amigas printed calendar.  The gals from Las Amigas have them available for sale at the Saturday swap meet.  If you want to get your events listed in their calendar be sure to get the information about the event to them in the Spring.  Calendars are printed in May or June for the following year.  I keep a one of their paper calendars under my laptop for reference.
