NOTE:
  • An event only appears on the calendar below once it has been confirmed and all details set. Days that appear to be free below may already have events in the planning stages under way.
  • At least a month's advanced notice is appreciated for event planning. As a reminder, we are not professional entertainers or actors and all of our activities are done on a volunteer basis only.
  • Even with a free day and sufficient advanced notice, we cannot guarantee availability for events, again due to the fact that we are all volunteers who do this in our spare time.
