Concord Patch is a place to read the news and share your views, but the site is also a resource for community members to publish information pertinent to their fellow Concordians. Here's how you can help keep the community informed, and publicize your event or news — all for free.
Whether it's a post about a missing dog, a local scholarship or the need for volunteers at the library, the announcements section on Concord Patch is free and open to all. Simply visit Concord-CA.Patch.com/announcements and provide as much information as you can. Click on "upload photos & video" to include a picture, which helps ensure your announcement gets maximum visability on Concord Patch. Announce anything from garage sales to engagements and graduations.
Put it on the calendar
The Concord Patch community calendar is also a free space to share local goings on. Add upcoming events in Concord and they'll be included in the calendar and published in the Concord Patch email newsletter. Add your event to the calendar at Concord.patch.com/events/new, and upload a picture too.
Blog about it
The Local Voices section on Concord Patch is entirely devoted to passionate people from the community who've got something to share — whether its expertise, insight or an opinion. Click on “Start a Blog” on the homepage, and get writing — when you're done, hit "submit" and your post will be ready to roll on to the editor for publication.
