WERU Community Calendar

WERU serves the communities in our listening area. One way we do this is by offering information about local events on-air.

If you have a local event to share on-line and on-air. All events are edited by our Office/Volunteer Coordinator, Chris Stark before they are published. (please read and follow Submission Guidelines including two weeks notice). If you have any further questions, please contact us.
