Here is our policy regarding our Community Announcements:
You may not post for sale, yard sale, garage sale, for sale by owner, special sale, or open house announcements. You may not post wanted to buy announcements. These are for classified ads in your local paper, not community announcements.
All announcements are posted for five days only. If you wish to keep an announcement up until the actual date of the event, you must post it again when it expires.
