Bulletin Board Policies and Procedures

LCTV BULLETIN BOARD

LCTV would enjoy helping your organization promote your cause or special event.

The bulletin board is reserved for the sole use of nonprofit organizations to announce their missions, upcoming events, activities or public services.

If your organization is not located in a town that fully funds LCTV, there is a charge for each POSTING. Please contact us for the exact amount.
