  Alas, the computer gremlins have bit us and we have not yet found the antidote. In plain language, we can't enter new info into the Events file.

But there's a work-around.  The same info is now in the Newsletter Tab as a viewable/downloadable PDF file.

If you have any Anti-Gremlin treatment, please share.
