The GMCR Community Calendar provides notice of local music, arts, culture and civic events.  It is based in large part on Anne McCormick’s email calendar which is now compiled and administered by Grant County Community Health Council.  The GMCR calendar may include additional events and omit or edit others which lie outside our editorial policies – such as our non-commercial guidelines.

To include an event on the calendar please send your request to healthcouncilgc@gmail.com (healthcouncilgc null@null gmail NULL.com) and include the following information:

  • Event name
  • Date and time
  • Location with physical address
  • Short description if desired
  • Cost, if any
  • Contact name / phone / email / URL

If you have a reoccurring event, please send monthly notices which should include the date(s) and requested information from above.

Note that the list is compiled from list serve participants, various community calendars, and area postings.  GCCHC and GMCR do not take responsibility for any missing/incorrect events and we retain the right to exclude unsuitable events.
