Calendar

Leslie Goddard

NOTE FOR AUDIENCE MEMBERS:  Many groups are now meeting in-person (hooray). Many are still virtual (hooray as well). Just be sure, if an in-person event is listed here, check with the presenting organization to make sure it's still a go.


Some organizations require RSVPs. I always recommend checking with the organization directly if you are interested in attending.


NOTE FOR HOST ORGANIZATIONS: Unfortunately, my calendar is now fully booked for November and December 2021 but there are plenty of openings in 2022. This calendar is updated approximately once a month. It may take up to 4 weeks for a booking to appear here.​
