    Smile grammar with THERE

    Hello again,
    warm and friendly greeting from Tashkent, Uzbekistan

    The more I click on this site, the more interested I become
    I would once more like convey my ever deepest thanks to those who run this site, who help us as moderators, and who just assist us as friends.

    My question:
    Is this sentence, i.e. its structure to be more precise, correct in English:

    There have recently been organized an event devoted to alcoholism.
    There is appeared a problem you don't wish to hear.

    And a warm and friendly response from Canada.


    There [have] has recently been organized an event devoted to alcoholism.

    There [is] has appeared a problem you don't wish to hear.

    hmmmmmmmmmm, ... , ..., thinking it over, I don't think that it's out of the question that,

    "There is appeared ..." while, uncommon/flowery?/literary?/archaic?, it could, ... it just might be possible.
