Editor's note: If you have an item for consideration in the Dateline, please submit it by the deadline shown above. It is Messenger policy to list items of public interest which are free or which benefit a non-profit organization. Humanitarian benefits will also be considered. Private business events are listed on a one time basis if they are "one of a kind," low in cost, and space allows. Some ongoing events of high interest to the community will be listed continually at the discretion of the editor. To be certain that your event receives coverage in the paper you are advised to take out an ad.
