Your Community is Fantastic!

February 8, 2016 - 10:52am launched less than a week ago which is so hard to believe!

We launched this exciting news portal in your community and you have had a few days to explore the site and see all the goodies we have for you.

But reporters, editors, advertising reps and management have been hard at work in your community preparing to launch this massive news site.

Personally, I have to say, it has been an exciting adventure for me to find out all about your community.

As editor of Community Affairs (stuff under the COMMUNITY TAB) I have been in contact with many people, going through webpages, community sites, phone books. I have been searching my memory of things I discovered on trips I have made to North Battleford and Battleford, also remembering the stunning beauty of your communities.

With childlike anticipation I have been working to discover all your treasures! It has been such an exciting adventure to find unique and wonderful groups. I see already how much the Battlefords and area is a community that cares for each other immensely. I see you love sports and you love to do things outside. I am starting to see the exciting programs from your schools.

Remember – Community Group News is YOUR news. This is the news about your groups; about what you do as a community; the groups that make the Battlefords and area extra special.

Community Group News wants your news – NEEDS your news. People like to read about their friends, family and co-workers. People want to read about how the kid’s hockey team did, they want to read about the group that provide support to families; about special needs kids having a fun time out; about horse rides and senior’s events; about dances and suppers; about curling and ball.

Community Group News does all that FOR FREE.

We have unlimited space – and unlimited readership.

As members of the community that are all involved in something – this is, FINALLY, your chance to be creative in marketing your group, in showing not just the immediate community but thousands of others from other areas or Battlefords expats, WHO you are and WHAT you do.

Be creative.

At’s Community Group News, you can promote your events, you can encourage new membership (you never know who is looking for you), you can celebrate what you do.

Many organizations depend on volunteers. Celebrate them by doing a weekly feature focussing on a volunteer.

You have a community with an amazing history. Share that with me, with us, with the world!

Kids have hockey games, ball games, soccer games all the time. You are all so proud! Send the information and we will post that for our thousands of readers to see. Send me up to four COLOR photos for all to see.

Seniors have special events all the time. Guess what? People want to read about those events and celebrate your achievements. Send us the information for the world to see.

In Community Group News, there is no limit to the length of articles or to the number of articles or news items you can send in.

Let us help you.

Help us celebrate you.

Send all your news items to me directly at [email protected].

I’m looking so forward to working with you all and finding out more of the great things about the Battlefords!
