We used this spreadsheet in 2015 to organize all the required activities. Thanks Carl Larson!

Here’s a write up of how and why and to what goal we edit the calendar:

Modifications in recent years are:

artwork

  • failure to get things in order in time for artist selection by committee, so picked contributors to the community
  • not printing a full run of posters anymore. It cost money there was negligible community engagement in getting them posted around town. Now we print a handful and give them out to the artist and key volunteers and high-dollar donors.

calendar editing doc

…was written up last year but was for the old “classic” calendar so the advice is not universally applicable around the tech - but is applicable around the database and the “what is our goal in editing?” portions.
