Deadline for advertising in CIVIC NEWS (PSCC newsletter)

Reach the Park Slope Community!

Our bi-annual publication, CIVIC NEWS, is once again taking paid advertising! If you would like to advertise your business, please follow the instructions below, and make sure we hear from you in time for the Spring/Summer issue deadline!

The Civic News is circulated to all members and distributed at all community events, so your ad will be widely seen by many hundreds to thousands of folks in the community.

We look forward to seeing your business on the pages of Civic News!

And here’s a look at both the last Civic News issue and a “mock-up” of what an ad might have looked like had that been an option about 6 months back.
