Downbeach.com, a subsidiary of Mediawize, LLC of Ocean City, has set up a page on its website to serve as a clearinghouse for community events that may need to be rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Local nonprofits and community organizations that currently have events scheduled for the coming months, or need to revise their event schedules, can have their events listed on the “Downbeach Events” page on the Downbeach.com website.
For instance, Margate Business Association is moving ahead with its annual Beachstock event scheduled for the last weekend in June, but if it’s rescheduled, it will be important to pick a new date that does not conflict with other previously scheduled events.
Business leaders said having a clearinghouse for events would be beneficial not only to local organizations, but also to the public, and help prevent scheduling conflicts.
“The Downbeach Events page will provide a quick glance of upcoming events that can be referenced if you are planning to hold an event, need to reschedule, or simply want to know what’s going on in the Downbeach community,” Staff Writer Nanette LoBiondo Galloway said. “Just click on the Downbeach Events tab at the top of our homepage.”
Galloway also recommended readers sign up for 6 a.m. daily email blasts with all the news stories of the day. Just enter your email address in the “Subscribe to Our Newsletter” field on the homepage of Downbeach.com and each morning you will receive a listing of all the stories published the previous day.
“It’s a great way to have all our news stories sent directly to your email account without having to log on to our site,” Galloway said.
Anyone who would like to get their event listed can send information to firstname.lastname@example.org in the following format: Time, including a.m. or p.m., day of the week, date, name of the event and organization sponsoring it, a brief description of the event and contact information. Include your name, telephone number, email address and web address. If you have a graphic, flyer or photo, send that along in jpg or pdf formats only. Also, let us know as soon as possible if your event is cancelled or postponed.
