Who “runs” the Stonebridge Events website?
This website was created and is maintained by group of community volunteers. The website “belongs” to the Stonebridge community residents and anyone is welcome to volunteer, assist and participate in it’s success. Interested? Just send us a note via the Contact page.
Can I be a contributor?
Absolutely. As long as you are willing to learn a bit about using WordPress and are willing to adhere to a few simple editorial guidelines we can get you on your way to eventually managing your own posts and events.
Editorial guidelines? What’s up with that??
This website is dedicated to providing upbeat, friendly news about our community and it’s events and community initiatives. Over the last few years our ‘hood has grown enormously from our original little mailing list. Our goal is to bring a professional, fair and positive approach to the delivery of community information. To that end, we do not publish editorial, political, nor divisive or disruptive communication of any kind. As a subscriber to our community mailing list, you have our promise that you will receive nothing but positive news and information about our events, charities and community initiatives.
I’d like to be on the mailing list, but I’m concerned about privacy and my personal information
Community mailings which come from Stonebridge Events, and any personal information you may share on our contact or other forms are protected by a triple firewall, and your email address and personal info is protected by the same type of encryption that is used for your online banking. Nothing can ever be 100% safe, but your email address is immeasurably more safe here than in the hands of a neighbor. Beginning May 1, (as is required by law), subscribers will be able to remove their email address from our list with a single click.
Who can use the clubhouse?
Anyone who is a resident of Stonebridge is free to book and use the clubhouse for a COMMUNITY event (like a neighborhood dance), or a PRIVATE event (like your Mom’s “family only” birthday party).
Does it cost anything to book the clubhouse?
Currently, COMMUNITY events are no charge, but there may be a charge or deposit required for a PRIVATE event. This policy may be subject to change in the future.
How do I book the clubhouse for my event?
Stonebridge does have a “social committee” to help out with event planning, volunteers etc., when they are asked for assistance. Residents are free to book and manage their own events without interference though, and are not required to “clear” or “register” their event with anyone other than Gail Nicholls (community event) or Laura (private event) at the Stonebridge sales office. To book the clubhouse for your community event, simply email Gail Nicholls She will be glad to help you to set things up! Alternately you can email any one of our Volunteers and we’ll be glad to assist. Send us a note here at the website and we’ll make sure your event gets up on the Calendar.
Why isn’t my private birthday party booking up on the website calendar?
At present, we are only listing COMMUNITY events on the Stonebridge Events Calendar. As we grow and become more subscribed we may change that policy. That’s why it’s important that you check with the Sales Office for availability before listing your event!
I have an idea for an event or club but I don’t know where to start?
The Stonebridge Social Club takes an active interest in community programming and meets informally a few times a year to discuss ideas and frame out the next six months or so. This is YOUR community. EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to participate. Further info? Please drop a line to Mary Lou Hardy for all the details.
