GUIDELINES


If your organization has an item you think belongs in the Planner, drop us a note. Include a brief description of the event, the date it opens and closes, the location and the admission charge. Also include a telephone number for more information. For consideration for a "Spotlight," include a slide or color or black-and-white photo. Deadline is noon Tuesday for Friday publication, but we ask that you get items to us as soon as possible.

Mail your items to: Entertainer Calendar, c/o the Missoulian, P.O. Box 8029, Missoula, 59807.
