Things To Do! 2/24/17 – 3/5/17

Hi everyone. I’m so sorry I’m late on posting. I lost my job this week and it threw my world into a bit of a tailspin. But you guys get the benefit of my extra time today, because this list doesn’t stop at Thursday but goes through next Sunday. I hope that helps you plan ahead.

If you know about anything I’ve missed, please feel free to share the info in the comments below, and if you have upcoming events PM the info to me and I’ll make sure to add it.

On Friday, March 3rd The Mid Day Show comes back on the air, and I’ll be chatting at 12.30pm about upcoming events.
