To post events to the site for free: navigate to the Events page and click "Add an Event" on the right side of the page. Tell us all the details about your upcoming event, then click "Post my Event" at the bottom of the page.
That puts the event directly on our calendar. The end result is the same as if the editors had posted it for you. The only difference is, when you post it, it goes up right away. If you send it to the us, you might have to wait.
To post announcements to the site for free: simply click the Announcement option under the news tab on the homepage. On the right side of the screen you’ll see the button "Add an Announcement." This will take you to Patch’s announcement form. Once there, tell the community all about your child's sports league victory or your civic club’s new members. When you’re ready, click "Publish My Announcement" and it will go live to the site immediately.
With just a few clicks, you can tell the town when you get married, have a baby, graduate or make the dean's list. Have you been promoted have a milestone anniversary coming up? Share it and upload a photo, too!
You can also write a public thank you, provide details about your group's upcoming event, publish a political news release or ask for volunteers.
