Editor’s note: The Sentinel offers nonprofit and other community organizations an opportunity to promote upcoming events for free in this community calendar for three days before the event. Events needing reservations also may be promoted for up to two weeks prior to the reservation deadline.

Events that require a purchase from a for-profit business, even if a donation is made to the organization, are not eligible for the calendar.

Submit items at least one business week before publication via email, events@lewistownsentinel.com; voice mail, (717) 248-6741; online, Virtual Newsroom at www.lewistownsentinel.com; or mail or drop off, The Sentinel, P.O. Box 588 Lewistown, PA 17044. The editor reserves the right to edit all submissions.

With all submissions, you must include a telephone number for verification purposes. The phone number is not for publication, unless so indicated.

If your organization wishes to add a recurring event (e.g., every Monday, third Thursday) that was canceled as a result of the pandemic, contact Lifestyles Editor Jeff Fishbein, email living@lewistownsentinel.com or call (717) 248-6741, ext. 108.
