The Chronicle has been providing free and low-cost breakfasts and other events for much of the 42 years the paper has been in existence. The newspaper is a community newspaper, with a focus on the community.

We have sponsored the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast Forum, the Community Service Awards Gala, the Lash/Chronicle Junior Varsity Basketball Tournament and Gospel Fest, with the first of two held Sunday, Oct. 2. The second and last part of Gospel Fest will be held Sunday, Oct. 9.

On Saturday, Oct. 1, The Chronicle began a new era of helping people in the community. We sponsored a free seminar called “News Media 101: Helping to Get Your Message Across.” The seminar was designed to help representatives in the nonprofit community, including churches, navigate the news media waters in order to successfully get their messages reproduced by the news media.

The Chronicle has a staff with experts who shared knowledge working across three kinds of media: print, broadcast and online. People in the community know that these news media exist but might not realize that there are various ways to get their attention. Some people are going about it the wrong way, so their information is lost or does not reflect the basic information they desire. The Chronicle helped them understand how news media work and how to get their attention correctly.
