Home»Blog»Becki’s Blog: Mashpee Calendar of Events
You may have noticed a few changes to the layout of the Mashpee Chamber website. One of the biggest additions we have made is a calendar of events, which I have been working on for the past month and half. The calendar of events consists of not only Mashpee Chamber events, but other events that appear in the Mashpee
Magazine as well. Right now, you are probably wondering why we are adding a calendar of events if we already have them listed in the guidebook. Great question! I misplace things and can’t find them until months, even a year or two, later. By that point, the information that I was once looking for is most likely irrelevant. In the case of the Mashpee Magazine, we have so many events listed between June and August, that having that at your fingertips is very important. But, if you lose it, you can still refer to our upcoming events on the Mashpee Chamber website so that event won’t be a thing of the past once you find the event you’re interested in.
Working on the calendar of events is more than just submitting entries, it’s a lot of work involved. First, I have to find the business’ information that’s hosting the events and then the vendor. If there is no information on the Mashpee Chamber website, I have to do some research so I can enter it myself. If there are recurring events through the season, I have to duplicate the original event entry, edit the hyperlink, and change the date. I try to be as consistent and detailed as possible.
The Mashpee Chamber of Commerce is a small, local business that serves the community. We want to reach out to as many citizens and visitors as possible, especially during the busy summer season here on Cape Cod. We know people want to find things to do and can only do so when they know where and what to look for. Hopefully, the Calendar of Events will help people find what they are interested in and draw more participants to our events and events going on around the Upper Cape.
