Help Spread The Word!
PUBLICITY FLYERS AND EVENT INFORMATION
PRINT. SHARE. POST.
A key to successful event planning is getting word out to the community about upcoming events. AWS depends heavily on the support of all our friends and associates that help "spread the word" about our activities, fundraisers and events. One of the most effective ways that we can advertise and promote AWS is by having members and friends of the shelter print, share and post our flyers.
OUR GEOGRAPHIC AREA
AWS generally advertises events in the local towns the shelter services: Bridgewater, Brookfield, Roxbury, Washington, and New Milford, Connecticut. We do maintain a very favorable and interested following throughout Litchfield, Hartford, New Haven and Fairfield Counties. While most people that attend and participate in our events are from the immediate area, we welcome the opportunity of exposure throughout Connecticut and Western New York.
We ask that you are respectful of the business places where you are posting/sharing AWS flyers. It is always good courtesy to check with someone of authority that the flyer is appropriate to the store, business or organization before you leave or post it. Some private, public and civic organizations have policies prohibiting the posting of flyers and posters, or may not feel that AWS is a suitable match to their particular clientele. Being respectful of these policies is of key importance.
WHERE TO POST
AWS EVENT FLYERS
The most ideal places to post an event poster are high traffic locations such as convenience stores, gas stations and grocery stores. Just about any public place tends to work well.
