Events & Announcements

Here is the place to check out what for current information and events are coming up.

For the time being, we will only have a calendar listing on the website. The old calendar did not work on iPads, iPhones or Android phones and slowed down the Events page loading. This is only until we deploy the new website in the next few months. Don’t forget to RSVP! This will aid us in planning future events.
