Mark Your Calendar – September Events

There is somethings SERIOUSLY wrong with the title of this post!  Can anyone guess what that might be?  Huh?  Huh?  It’s ‘THAT’ word — ‘September’….ugh.  I remember VERY clearly sitting down at my computer writing a post entitled, ‘Mark Your Calendar – June Events’!  Where did the time fly?  For those of you already back in school the DEN in LC hopes you had a great start to the school year, and for those of you (like myself) who will be getting back on Tuesday, the DEN in LC wishes you all the best.  And to start off your school year, why not mark your calendar for the following Wednesdays (and some other days) for some fabulous workshops:
