Before I tell you about the upcoming events, let me remind you that Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend at 2 a.m. on Sunday 11/4.

Your Smart Phones will automatically adjust the time.  If you don’t want to be late or miss the events on Sunday, remember to adjust your clocks.  Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you to change the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detector.
