Remember, the sooner we have your information and can post it to our calendar the more successful your event will be. You can also post directly to our FaceBook page as well . . .
Many of the Chapters have posted pictures of their installations and Holiday Parties on our FaceBook pages. If you have pictures and would like to share them, please feel free to do so by creating a FaceBook album of your Chapter or regional event.
