The Lower Bucks Leader welcomes announcements and event postings, and we do not charge for items that appear on our Community Bulletin Board. Here are a few things to keep in mind when submitting an item:

 

  • Please email a brief paragraph (or two at most) about your event to Editor@LowerBucksLeader.com, writing it out exactly as you would like it to appear. Be sure to include the date, time, place, price of admission, and where people can get additional info. We will only edit the text if we must, in order to make it fit.

 

  • Please do not send a flyer, either by email or regular mail, because the info contained in it will have to be retyped by LBL staff. We often do not have time to do so. It’s okay to send a flyer as long as you also provide the text separately.

 

  • Please note that we cannot guarantee that an item we receive will be included, since we receive more than we can fit. While we applaud charity events sponsored by or hosted at local businesses, we give priority to nonprofit organizations as well as true community and township events.
