Calendar deadline Sunday

Residents have until Sunday, April 1, to get birthday, anniversary or other listings included on the 55th community calendar.

The “birthday” calendar, long organized by Haines school students, has been resurrected after a one-year hiatus as a fundraiser by the local Venturer Scouts program. The upcoming calendar will start June 1, 2013, and run through May 2014. It will include major holidays, local events and school dates for the coming year, said Kim Larson, Venturer Scouts vice president.

The calendar isn’t just for birthdays, Larson said. “People list their dogs and family reunions. I can basically do anything, I think.”

Calendars cost $10 and listings are 50 cents each. Call Larson at 766-3885 by Sunday to post a listing – and to reserve a calendar – as supplies of extras after printing may be limited. Larson said she hopes to keep the calendar going in future years.
