The CDC begin publishing the Outlook in 2011. We would like you to note that the CDC staff does not write any of the articles, they simply compile all the submissions and put everything together. If we do not have any submissions then we will not publish that week. The Intent of the Outlook are many.
1. To provide organizations a low cost alternative to Advertising their events. We do not charge if things are in a article format. Non-profit organizations generally get advertising for free IF they submit the ads. Business can also submit articles for FREE but they do pay for advertising.
2. To assist people with knowing what is going on in the region and let organizations tell people – in one place- what is happening. We have approximately 235 online subscribers, we post on facebook, instragram and print copies that are distributed in Birtle, Miniota & Foxwarren. You can also view all past issues on the Municipal Website.
3. So that we can all feel a sense of Pride in all that is happening. We don’t have many rules…but the articles MUST be positive in nature. If you want to complain about something we aren’t your outlet.
4. Many of our subscribers are past residents – they love to know what is happening in the place they were so fond of. We also know that our newsletter reaches many in neighbouring communities that like to keep informed.
