Community Calendar Events

April 29th, 2010

I get hundreds of emails each day and a large portion of them come from listeners and churches interested in submitting their information for our community calendar.  I thought it might be helpful to give some hints about the events page and how to submit your Community Calendar events.

The community calendar is both the literal calendar that you find on our events page as well as the public service announcements you will hear DJ’s read from time to time on the air.

A few tips for the events calendar,  for those new to the page (or have always wondered):

1.  You can click on any event and find more information.

2.  Color codes:

Green: Get up and Go Show guests

Blue: Kids Cookie Break Events

Red: WJTL Live Events

Black: Community Events

3. We ask that you mail, fax or email your information to us at least 2 weeks prior
to your event.  Include the date, time, location, short description of event and contact information
including a phone number or website that can be given out on the air.

4.  We try to announce events that make sense for us to mention on WJTL.  So, if an event is about a band or music style we wouldn’t play,  geared to a very specific audience (like a church business meeting), or Sunday morning events (due to the fact that there are hundreds of churches in the area doing special things every Sunday morning) they would not be listed.  There are several other guidelines, but these are some of the biggies.

5.  PSA’s are free and we do our best to give attention to as many as we can on the air.

If you have any other questions about an announcement you heard or would like to submit a PSA, please email contact@wjtl.com.

    Copied below is information about a benefit concert being sponsored by the Mt. Gretna Cicada Festival in Mt. Gretna, PA. We would be happy to answer any questions about this concert and our organization at 964-3462 or http://www.cicadafestival.com.

    Mt. Gretna Cicada Festival
    Teen Challenge Men’s Choir
    Mt. Gretna Playhouse
    Monday, August 8, 2011
    8:00 PM – $5 admission (all seats reserved)
    Call: 717-964-2046 for tickets now

    This concert is presented by the Mt. Gretna Cicada Festival and ALL ticket proceeds will benefit Teen Challenge, a national organization locally headquartered in Rehrersburg, PA. The Choir is composed of young men from all over the United States, and is truly unique because every member comes from a background of drugs, alcohol and/or crime. Once lost, but now found, the men of Teen Challenge are called to reach others in hopes of helping those who suffer from life-controlling issues. The Choir brings an array of praise and worshop selections that light up the stage. You are sure to be touched as they sing, perform, and testify to God’s transforming power.
