Did You Hear The Buzz?

When you speak, we're all ears!

Did you hear the buzz? No, it was not the beehive up on the roof of the Westin. Eye On Annapolis has been making some subtle changes to enhance your experience here.

So, what has been changed or added? Well, for starters, we have read all of the comments submitted in our Reader Survey and taken action based on your recommendations.

You asked for more good news. We have now launched a Tuesday column that will feature all of the volunteer opportunities across the county.  If you have some time to spare or a skill to share, why not consider volunteering to help out. This will be updated weekly with new opportunities for everyone!

You asked for some local sports coverage. We contacted the Athletic Directors of each high school in the county and told them to pass the word to their coaches and boosters! Now, we have a separate section that will report on high school sporting events. Sometimes it may be a game recap and other times it may just be some statistics. We understand the coaches are busy, but we are pleased to share this information with our readers!

And most exciting, you asked for more community event coverage and listings. Enter our COMMUNITY CALENDAR! On the right side of the page, there is a calendar. Hover your mouse over the date and see what is listed. You can click for more information on any given event.  To make this calendar successful, we need your help. We have created a new page for you to PUBLICIZE YOUR EVENT. It is featured at the top of the page in big bold letters. All we need is the basic information and an email address for you in case we have any questions. Once we have the information, we will publish it for everyone to see! So please spread the word and let all of your organization and clubs know.

There were a few other really good suggestions from our readers and we are looking in to ways to implement them as well, so stay tuned while we get to work to build a better site for you.
