Note from the Editor:

New Feature of Jamaica Plain News — Add Your Event to the Calendar: I’m thrilled to announce Jamaica Plain News is now set up so you can add your own events to the calendar. As more people use the site, I hope the calendar becomes your first stop when you want to know what’s happening in our neighborhood. It’s easy to do. Here’s the link. Please note that while we offer free event listings for non-profit and community organizations, we charge $5 for businesses to list events. We waive that small fee as a perk to our advertisers.
