A March Event Instead of April

Working on a March event is a great deal of fun; you work during the cold, dark winter days, and the event blossoms just in time for spring! It has a slightly different feel than events in the traditional spring event season. March events could conceivably come in like a lion, and go out like…

Events This Year: Save the Dates!

Now that the holidays are behind us, it’s go-time for planning events this year! Many of the events that we help to plan take place annually.
