Submit your event early...

Willunga. Your event will be updated as you supply additional information,

for the monthly InaNutshell the easier it is for our voluntary staff.

2. Use words like "you", "your" and "the".
Avoid using "we", "I", "us" and "our",

"finished" check through your text and remove unnecessary words (on websites

could be of use. They may be able to be used.
