    Can the events be for a fee.  We have art workshops but they are not free although open to anyone who wished to attend and pay the fee.  These are nationally known instructors and  do not come for free.

  7. Ameliaprivateeye

    Hi Sandra,
    Events that are one day events are perfect for the calendar, and of course multiple day festivals, even if there is a fee or admission price. If the event/class is multiple days a press release is encouraged, and we publish those for free, too. (Sometimes we will put them in the calendar AND publish the press release information.) If you have any other questions about SearchAmelia, you can email me directly at Judie@SearchAmelia.com

  8. Aspasia the Promulgator

    Hi guys, and happy holidays to you and yours. For the month of December, the location for the Fernandina Pirates Club blood drive has been changed to the Journey Church parking lot.
