Note from the editor:
The publisher (GREAT NEWS MEDIA) partners with the community association such as Banff Trail to support efforts to unify and advocate for residents. This partnership applies to the community association and the activities that directly fund and support them. Although there are many engaging and rewarding events, programs and businesses in the community, the goal is to publish events and programs that occur within our community.  Those who rent our hall are already in partnership with our association.  Those who are in partnerships with other community halls within Calgary can also get published in the Howler if space allows.  
The Howler can ONLY provide information about the city, community and neighbourhood so long as it is community-partnered.  In other words:
-Free neighbourhood soccer programs ads are acceptable content, for-profit soccer league ads are not.
-Seniors’ group programming offered at a community hall is acceptable content, seniors’ group programming offered at the local church is not.  
Those who wish to advertise in the Howler, please contact Great News Media:
