  2. To Whom It May Concern:

    I am the media communications volunteer representative for the Huron Valley Council for the Arts and would like to have our arts and humanities events and happenings listed in the Oakland County community calendar. Please let me know the details for submission and the deadlines for publication. We consider inclusion in your calendar an invitation to the public to attend our events and experience the arts in Oakland County. Thank you for your help.
    Sincerely,
