Readers are telling us they are missing our online community calendars, which became unavailable Aug. 12. Alas, the calendars were the last remnant of our old VillageSoup platform, which has been discontinued by the company that owned it.

Although our technical staff has been working on temporary replacements, we might have to wait until we launch our new production system, which is expected in first quarter next year, for new calendars on our Knox and Waldo websites. We will keep you posted.

Meanwhile, we have created a new Events section under the Community tabs in our Knox and Waldo navigation bars, replacing the calendar links. We are now posting lists of events there weekly, and we are also publishing lists of Community Briefs and press releases about community happenings in the Community News section.

If your organization has been running recurring calendar announcements that we programmed to appear weekly or monthly over a long period, please email those to us so that we can include them in Community Briefs.

We apologize for the inconvenience; we know readers have relied on our community calendars for many years.
