Pick up your hard copy of New Bern Now’s Ledger!

Have you picked up your hard copy of the New Bern Now Ledger – 20 page Area Guide for January – March 2013! The information in the Ledger was created by the people in our community, so it’s not designed as a “Tourism Guide”. Both residents and visitors can learn from the Ledger.

The Ledger is also available in color with links to websites online.

The Ledger is a “mini-version” of New Bern Now’s “Community” website. We welcome your community announcements and/or any information that may benefit readers on a daily basis.

We create each quarterly Ledger by selecting unique information that we’ve gathered from the previous quarter and from press releases that we receive before the Ledger’s deadline. This also includes information for the community calendar so you don’t have to submit it more than once.

Deadlines for submissions and advertisements is: April 15, June 15, Sept 15, and December 15.

The website’s Calendar of Events is updated a number of times a week and we try to post articles/announcements to the blog on a daily basis.

Special Thanks to Griffin & Tilghman Printers, Inc. for their terrific and speedy services!

I would also like to thank everyone in our community for sending information to NBN. Without your support, the Ledger and the website wouldn’t exist!

Please feel free to make any comments or suggestions below or send me an email on how I can improve the quarterly publication and website. Visit New Bern Now’s Facebook page and “press Like” if you’d like to find out about the latest happenings!
