For weddings, save-the-date cards are de rigueur. For Eagle courts of honor–not so much. But sending them out is a good idea, especially if they don’t cost you anything.
Reader Nicole Scott recommends using the popular Evite.com website to send electronic save-the-date notices to family, friends, and fellow troop members. I created the sample above in under a minute and could have sent it out, for free, to an entire mailing list in just a couple of minutes more. (You can import contacts from providers like Gmail or from a CSV–comma-separated-values–file.)
A great thing about evites is that recipients can RSVP electronically and also add the date to their calendars. Evite.com also sends automatic reminders two days before events.
What great ideas do you have for spreading the word about courts of honor? Post your ideas in the comment section. (Nicole will receive a free Eagle Mountain Certificate for her idea.)
