Around Town: July 2017

Editor’s Note: We had some serious space issues in this month’s Lebanon Local  – which is a good problem to have for a local paper… However, somewhat inadvertently, the Around Town section got left out. We consider that a very important element of the paper and we don’t plan to do that again. Also, apologies to anybody who sent events in that did not make it. Here are some upcoming events for the months of July and early August: 

If you have announcements that you’d like to include in Around Town in the Lebanon Local, please e-mail them to [email protected]. Local, non-profit events get priority. For-profit events conducted by businesses may be considered if they are being held as fund-raisers. We publish immediately after the School Board meeting each month, which usually occurs on the second Wednesday of the month. The paper generally arrives in mailboxes on Friday and in local retail locations on Monday following publication, so time announcements accordingly. We generally attempt to post all of the announcements we receive, no matter what the timing, on this site. Questions? Please call us at (541) 367-2136. Thanks!
