Maybe you’ve noticed our new online calendar at www.northislandgazette.com.

It’s definitely not the old one, but it is better and much easier to use.

Our online calendar is a great way to create buzz about your organization or your event.

If you do have an event or function you wish publicized on the North Island — or anywhere Black Press has a paper — this is the place to do it.

The new calendar requires no login or password, and the form to submit an item is super easy to use.

You can designate where  — and when — you wish the calendar item to appear within the region’s Black Press B.C. family of websites.

You can also spread the word about your event to Facebook and Twitter from our calendar and, of course, it’s free.

There’s even a spot for an image, say a rehearsal photo from a high school play.

Someone here in the Gazette newsroom will check each item before it posts, just to make sure it complies with our simple guidelines which lead off the submission form.

Basically, please don’t post a business-oriented sale.

And by the way — did we mention it’s dead simple to use?
