Title: A Parent in Silver Spring Calendar
Description: Daily events and activities for families

If there is ever something you’d like me to add to the calendar, send me an email! I list all events for free.

Recurring events are the best fit for the calendar and will reach the most people.

The calendar is meant to be a place for a parent to quickly check when she knows she has X amount of time on X day and BOOM, she’s found a fun event to take her child and get out of the house.

All events I list occur in a public setting and are hosted by an established organization or business. This is for the safety of our kids and parents!

One-time special events are a best fit for a blog post the week of the event. Again, email me about those and if the event is a good fit for the site, I’ll write about it for you!

If you see an error on the calendar, please let me know. I try to regularly call the businesses listed and I painstakingly go through all listings to verify times and details. However, recurring events often change and I am not notified.

On the left hand sidebar the family activities calendar is chock-full of more great activities and events than ever.

Also on the left is the brand new school open house calendar. If you’d like your school’s open house to be featured, please send me the info.

If you’d like a more prominent placement on the website promoting your school or upcoming event, please feel free to contact me about monthly advertising rates. The bargain-basement cost to advertise here in 2008 is available for one more month and you can lock in at that rate for as long as you like. Rates will go up slightly in 2009 due to dramatically increased website traffic since this little ol’ site began.

Here’s to a stress-free school and activities search for everyone in 2009!
