NOTICE TO ALL WHO USE FACEBOOK TO PUBLICIZE YOUR EVENTS! FB has always been a pain for those without accounts (without accounts for very good reasons). If you can even see a page without logging in, it constantly pops up SIGN IN NOW windows, won't let you scroll beyond a certain point, and jumps back to the top whenever it feels like it. A new annoyance - a window DEMANDING that you log in - has made it even more difficult to get information about events from FB. Please please please, make sure your events are described on non-FB sites, too, like blogs, web pages, etc. You are welcome to have them included on this calendar - use the form or email couleeprogressive at hotmail. You are welcome to blog here or write about your event here. Please email for details!
