The Quad joins the Digital age
The Community Bulletin Board has been a popular feature ever since we bought the papers nearly 18 years ago. But times have changed and we are changing as well. We have launched our new digital classified ad section and it is a powerful tool for promoting your events. You can include photos, videos and more information.
Non-profits can still post a free notice in the paper – up to 100 words, but events that have an entry fee or are a fund raising project will have to pay for an ad. The cost is not significant $10 for 30 days and $20 if you want it to be a featured ad. A featured ad posts at the top of the listings and rotates among other featured ads on the home page.
Check out the new site at You can set up an account and post your ads 24/7. If you have lots of local events you want to post you can even set up a subscription account that allows you to post a number of ads every month and change them daily if you would like for no additional charge.
Free notices should be emailed to, subject line: Bulletin Board
