What your announcements should include...

Please use the following format as a guide:

TITLE OF EVENT – Day – Time - Address/Location - Description of event (include any ticket or admission costs, instructions, schedules, age limits, etc.) - Contact information (contact name, phone number, email and web site URL).
Any additional, relevant information is always helpful to the public. Just try to keep it short and sweet! :)
