The information we need is the day (such as 3rd Wednesday each month, every Tuesday, or whatever), the time, location (with directions if it isn't a place most people are likely to know), and a point of contact with phone number and/or e-mail address for those wanting more information.

Although we strive for accuracy in these listings, dates or times are often changed after publication. Please double-check the time and place of any event you wish to attend by calling the info number for that event.

The unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation presents scheduling challenges to area governance entities and other organizations. Because OCN is a monthly publication, readers should assume that information published in this issue is subject to change and event information should be confirmed a day or two before the event by calling the information number or checking the organizationís website.

Many entries show dates even though the event has been canceled or suspended. The date indicates when the event was planned to be held or when it would normally have been held.

Items, if any, differ from what was printed in the latest issue of OCN. We apologize for any inconvenience.
