PostHeaderIcon New NPO Calendar

The following links are here to allow you to download three month segments of the NPO Calendar. Keep checking back for updated links.

It can be printed using 8.5x14 inch paper for each page. At the top you need to find the center and punch a hole for hanging the calendar. I would recommend tape on the back side of the hole for reenforcement. We are asking for a donation of one dollar a page, or for ten dollars for the whole year. The donation is voluntary of course. I think our members will like the calendar.
We will publish the next three month installment of the calendar with the spring newsletter and so forth, with the summer and fall newsletters until we have the whole year published.
