Neighbors Connect

Welcome to the Northwest Herald's online home for McHenry County Neighbors. Neighbors is community-related photos and stories that publish, as space allows, each day in the paper with news, events and photos from people all across McHenry County.

If you have an upcoming event, please entered it directly into our community calendar at nwherald.com/calendar, which also is the source of our daily print Community Calendar. Items entered here automatically go in the print calendar the week it happens.

All print and online calendars are compiled from information input by event organizers, supporters or participants online. To have your event included in any print or online calendar, please follow that link and click on “+Add your event.” To input your event, you will need to have a free account. When inputting your event, be sure to select the categories that correspond to the calendar(s) in which you want your event to appear. Events should be input at least a week in advance.

The form below allows you to send your photos or news directly to our editors for publication. To submit photos and/or news for consideration in Neighbors, complete the form below.

Photos should be submitted no more than a month following the event. All people in photos must be identified with first and last names.
