There are 14 shopping days until Christmas and only 21 days left in the year. That means folks are starting to plan events for 2015. To make it easier to avoid conflicts, be sure and check out Pam’s Party Calendar online at http://theadvocate.com/columnists/pambordelon/8530318-123/pams-party-calendar.

Once you get your event date chosen, be sure and let me know so I can add it to the calendar. We want to make it the most comprehensive nonprofit event calendar in the area!
