Website Guidelines

This community website has been developed collaboratively by locals and the Community Website Partnership for visitors and community members to share and find local information, events, resources, announcements, volunteer opportunities, and projects. We encourage nonprofits, government agencies, businesses, places of worship, and groups to share what they do and what they have to offer by creating a free account and posting in the directory, calendar, volunteer, projects, and announcements pages.

Posting on this community website is free. You must have an account on our system in order to add a listing. You are encouraged to connect your posts all in one convenient online space. Create a directory listing for your organization or business, post a calendar event, share a volunteer opportunity, make an announcement and get the word out widely via the press release submission form.

Open to the Community

This community website provides locals a convenient place to search and post services, opportunities and information shared directly by community groups, businesses, and nonprofits. All posted information is public and intended to benefit and strengthen our community.

Golden Rule

Treat others with respect and kindness. No slander, cursing or negative speech targeting a person or group of people. Please remember the old adage: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Keep it PG

Keep content suitable for a general audience. Please post appropriate content. No slander, cursing, or any imagery not suitable to a general audience.

Keep it Local

Posts should originate locally and should be for the public benefit and open to the community. No garage/yard sales, or promotional sales events, unless they are part of a fundraising initiative or greater community effort. No solicitation or personal listings or selling wares.

What's Public is Public

When you post contact information (i.e. phone number, email address, etc), people can contact you without signing up for the website. We are not responsible for the emails and phone calls that you receive through this service.

We can Help

The Community Team can answer questions you might have, administers the site, moderates posts, and can even edit spelling and grammar mistakes! Posts not meeting the website guidelines may be archived or deleted.
