Staying in...
So not much to report as far as physical events. Most have been cancelled but a few remain for August through the rest of the year.
During the current condition affecting live events nationwide, many have cancelled or postponed until later in the year. Please check the Event Calendar before heading out to attend any event as there can be a change at the last minute.

If any one knows of a cancellation or postponement, please do NOT call, text or message me rather EMAIL the Name, Date, AND City AND State AND new date,  if applicable, to  This is the only way I can stay organized.
We have several Online Events listed on the site but you may find some additional ones out there as not everyone is notifying me know about them by completing the online form and most who simply send emails are so close, I don't have time to post.
Please check the site to be sure your favorite event is listed. If not, let me know and I will look into it. It's never too early to post your events. People do plan vacations and other trips surrounding our events so the sooner the better.
