Whether your club is holding a special event or hosting a great speaker, your team won its tournament, or other great news you've got to share, here's how:
Sign up for a Patch account. It's easy and free. (You can also choose to receive the daily newsletter, which highlights articles posted in the past 24 hours, or the breaking news alerts, which let you know when something big is happening in town.)
Next go to our announcements section and click the "announce something" in the drop down menu. Type your title, choose a category and write your newsworthy info in the space provided under description. If you're not sure which category to choose, pick Social Notes.
Make sure to upload any related photos, flyers or PDFs you have and click "post my announcement." Photos will help pull people's attention to your announcement. You're all set.
Once your announcement is edited, it should show up on Reston Patch. If it looks like something that should be shared with the community and has a photo, flyer or PDF attached we can feature it to the front page.
And don't forget to add your events to our events calendar too. Both events and announcements show up in our daily newsletters.
