Community Calendar Launched

A community calendar shared by the Paris-Henry County Chamber of Commerce, the Henry County Alliance, the City of Paris, Henry County, the Downtown Paris Association, Emergency Management and other agencies, which is available for public submissions, is now available at

Mayor Carlton Gerrell said “This is a community service and we hope everyone will use it, both to publicize and promote their own events and to help all of us do a better job of scheduling.” The web address is a portal page shared by multiple agencies featuring local information for both visitors and locals.

The Paris-Henry County Community Calendar is free and open to the public for local events of community interest. Submissions may be made by clicking the “Submit Event for Consideration” button and completing all necessary data. If additional assistance is required, email

Items not eligible to submission include:

  • For profit yard sales
  • Events that are discriminatory against any person or group
  • Events that are commercial in nature and are attempting to advertise, promote or sell products or services of an individual or an individual business unless it is for a Community sponsored or sanctioned event
  • Events that promote, exhibit, illustrate or manifest hate or obscene/pornographic/sexual content
  • Any event which does not comply with municipal, state or federal legislation
  • Any event deemed inappropriate.

Chamber Executive Assistant Monica Smith, who manages the calendar, says “We are already getting submissions and people are checking the calendar for upcoming events. We hope everyone will remember to post and utilize this service.”

The calendar will be included in a soon to be released application being developed by the Downtown Paris Association.
