    There are several events (2, 9, 11) that have 2018 dates… not exactly professional. An updated 2019 post should have been proofed for current dates/times for accuracy.

      Thanks for informing us. With the new WordPress, sometimes it doesn’t save properly and since we used last year’s post, not all changes made it. All 2018 dates have been corrected.

      Thank you for informing us! The link does bring you to the proper site and dates. We sometimes have issues with the new WordPress and not saving the document properly, and since we add from last year’s post, some did not save properly.
