                                Makes A Change…
          To better accommodate our readers, we will be offering advance information about upcoming events. The November issue
   introduces a new reporting schedule that will run from the 15th to the 15th of each month. The current issue will cover information for a
   45 day period (i.e. November 1st – December 15th) to get us on track for the coming months. The December issue will officially begin
   this new rotation providing event information from December 15th – January 15th . Each month to follow will be on the new rotation.
   Readers will now have timely information that overlaps receipt of the newsletter, so they will NOT miss out on the fantastic events
   planned the first week of the month.
