CDSS Events Calendar

I have moved the online events section to after the In Person events.


UPCOMING (IN PERSON & ONLINE EVENTS - "Local")

==============================================


I have tried (though not 100% successfully) to standardize the status of an event by the way the date is listed:


* If you see a date for 2022, then the event is happening, either online or in person. I have added "Online" to the event name if it is online. I suggest checking the website for COVID policy & latest status, as that status could change.


* If you see a month without a year, I found no definitive information on the website, but I would suggest you assume that the event is canceled for this year unless you find out otherwise.
