Inserting A Google Calendar Onto Our Website

Jeanne wanted us to start adding calendar events to our website. It sounded like a good idea, so I told her that I would try to figure out how. I did a google search on inserting a calendar and learned that Google has a calendar feature, so I tried that first. It was pretty easy to figure out.

I searched "insert calendar into website" which gave me options and I chose (which was titled Google Calendar)

The page gave instructions on:
Display a calendar on your site
Let people save an individual event from your site
Let people save all of your events from your site

So I read, followed directions and then fiddled with it until I liked what I had produced. One of the nice things about it is that if other folks use google calendar, they can update their own calendar with your event(s) very easily. So if you are planning to take a class, you can add it to your calendar with a few clicks.

Now we can add events and folks who care can easily see what we're up to!
