Is Your Event Not Listed?

Please note our policy: Our community calendar carries listings on a space-available basis for Tri-Lakes events that are sponsored by local governmental entities and not-for-profit organizations. We include events that are open to the general public and are not religious or self-promotional in nature. If space is available, complimentary calendar listings are included, when requested, for events advertised in the current issue.

To have your event included in Our Community Calendar: Contact John Heiser at 488-3455, P.O. Box 1742, Monument, Colorado 80132-1742, or calendar@ocn.me. The information we need is the day (such as 3rd Wednesday each month, every Tuesday, or whatever), the time, location (with directions if it isn't a place most people are likely to know), and a point of contact with phone number and/or e-mail address for those wanting more information. There is no charge for listings in Our Community Calendar.

Upcoming Events  - Our Community Calendar is subdivided into

Weekly and Monthly Events
Special Events

Although we strive for accuracy in these listings, dates or times are often changed after publication. Please double-check the time and place of any event you wish to attend by calling the info number for that event.

The unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation presents scheduling challenges to area governance entities and other organizations. Because OCN is a monthly publication, readers should assume that information published in this issue is subject to change and event information should be confirmed a day or two before the event by calling the information number or checking the organization’s website.

Many entries show dates even though the event has been canceled or suspended. The date indicates when the event was planned to be held or when it would normally have been held.

Items, if any, differ from what was printed in the latest issue of OCN. We apologize for any inconvenience.
