During the summer there are so many community events in and around our city.
What is really amazing to me is how many events there are even in my own community and we don't hear about them until the very last minute if at all. If event organizers want people to attend the various events they need to ensure that people are aware of them.
When you live in an area with a lot of apartment buildings even having a poster or something on the main floor as well as the basement floor of each building would help. Letting people know what is going on would be wonderful. In some ways knowing what is going on in the area can help you decide what you are going to be doing at a given time.
For us there are days when being home doesn't work as well for some of the events and other events we would like to be part of. Also if you are having guests over it would be nice to know what else is going on in the neighbourhood which could effect parking or even the enjoyment of your own apartment unit.
Everyone says there is a community newspaper that is for this area but I have never seen one for years and years. I think we were getting the paper on a regular basis we might know what is going on and not feel like it is only word of mouth that is used to promote any of the events that are being held in our area.
If you are organizing an event in any community it is very important to ensure that the community is aware of the event. Don't assume that word of mouth will be the best way to advertise. Knowing that an event is happening would really help attendance.
