News & Review’s 2024 calendars now available


News & Review produces a calendar every year. This year I wanted to do something a little bit different. With the collaborative efforts of Lucy Dold of the Community Foundation of White County and Nikki Jenkinson of the White County United Way, we were able to do just that.

You will now find Quick Response (QR) codes–those black squares arranged in a square grid on a white background–on each month of the calendar. The codes will link to the advertiser’s website or Facebook page. The process is simple with the use of your smart phone or tablet’s camera: Point the camera at the QR code (don’t take a picture), tap the icon or web address that appears near the code and it should launch the website or Facebook automatically.

In order to stay current throughout the year with listings of events, meetings, and resources in White County, I asked Nikki if she could share a QR code that would link to the United Way’s newly launched Community Calendar. She jumped at the opportunity. Businesses, groups, churches, organizations, and schools are able to share their events on the Community Calendar. It can be found by utilizing the QR code at the top of each month of the calendar.

With 2023 being the 25th anniversary of the Community Foundation, Lucy announced the Love Where You Live photo contest early in the year. She and I agreed we could collaborate our efforts to entice the community to enter photos of their favorite spots in White County. The winning photo will be featured on the front of the Community Foundation’s Annual report in May of 2024. In addition, News & Review chose 13 winning photos that are featured in this year’s calendar. We want to thank all those who entered. There truly are many beautiful spots in White County. The winners were Deborah Denton, Amber Gilbert, Kurt Keller, and Paige Ropp. Winners may pick up copies of the calendar at the News & Review office located at 921 O’Connor Blvd., Monticello.
