Each event has more information a link to the official website that sponsors the event. Just click on the name of the event to get more information.

There are also many news items posted to the News page – see the tab in the top menu. The News pages stream news from several local public Facebook pages.

The calendar here at shows new important dates such as Community Conversations, hosted virtually by Summit Pointe, Community Table Food Distribution.  More links are below about those new resources that also have dates associated with them.

The Free COVID -19 testing is listed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Due to restrictions by the calendar provider, the description of the event is just “Free Testing.”  Click through to the official links to learn more, or see this post:

Clues to using the Albion Google Calendar.

Anyone can see the calendar.

To sync the calendar to your own digital calendar, click the Google+ button in the lower right corner.

You will have the option to include other calendars that are shown here:

  • Earth events, such as the Equinox,
  • National Holidays (these might already be on your calendar),
  • National Observances (think St. Patrick’s Day)
  • and more.
  • We will add information on how to include the weather soon.

More about Creating Calendars

To get your own digital calendar so you can start to plan your own schedule the new way, we suggest Google calendars. First, create a Gmail account and log in to that. Google calendars are based on the web, unlike Outlook and iCalendar, that are more resource intensive. They can be grouped together like the calendar above.

Then, after you have a Gmail account, you can create a free Google Calendar for your own organization complete with annual repeating events and links to the best information on your website like we have done here. It’s a good idea to create a complete calendar, but also a “LITE” version with a few really big events so people don’t turn off your calendar with too many dates.

An example would be a Google Calendar for College Theatre Events, College Sports events, College Music events, and one combined. The pieces all work together.

Helping Albion to Coordinate Calendars

Others can then sync to your calendar and we will post community-wide calendars here with directions. Later we will post links to the best information on how to create and sync calendars. It isn’t that difficult if you follow the directions. It was FINDING the directions that was a bit hard.

We will be posting more info on how you can sync this calendar, and others, to your own google calendar, and other calendars such as Outlook. For apple devices, consider getting the app Sunrise, that is the only iOS app that is currently pushing for the Google calendar platform. The benefits of Google calendar is that it is web-based and cross-platform, no additional apps needed works on iphones and android devices also.
