New calendar access lets readers easily post community events online
The Port Orchard Independent and other Sound Publishing newspapers have made it simpler and easier for readers to list community events in our online calendar.
Our upgraded calendar access provides step-by-step directions for filling in all the information about an upcoming event.
Click on Calendar in the bar across the top of the home page at www.port-orchardindependent.com, or scroll down to the Community Events calendar displayed at the bottom of the page and click the “Add an Event” button.
A form will open with boxes to fill in relevant information about an event.
Events will show up in the online calendar within 48 hours.
There is no charge to list an event, and posters also can choose to add their events to online calendars at other Sound Publishing newspapers in Kitsap County or the greater Puget Sound region.
The online calendar will display events for the current month, but listings can be checked for months ahead as well.
The Community Events calendar is displayed at the bottom of the newspaper’s website home page, and it is displayed prominently among stories listed in tabbed sections, such as news, sports, opinon, etc.
