Newsletter Improvements: Concise calendar text

I love the newsletter functionality but I wish the text for the “Your Events in the Next 30 Days” section had a lot less text. I like that it runs as a sidebar but because there is so much boilerplate text and whitespace it can make the section go on and on and on.

Suggestions:

  • Build the TroopTrack link into the title of the event to remove that whole paragraph
  • Compress the “Add event to your calendar: …” to a single “Add to: :minidisc: :beginner: :exclamation: :calendar_spiral:” with icons for the services
  • Less whitespace

Resulting output:

New scout night August 30, 2016 at 07:00 pm
Everything you ever wanted to know about scouts. Bring your questions and bring your boys.

Current output for reference with the calendar links enabled (when squished into a 2 inch sidebar it becomes hard to read when there are 10 other events below it):

New scout night August 30, 2016 at 07:00 pm

Everything you ever wanted to know about scouts. Bring your questions and bring your boys.
