    Hello… We always look forward to your “weekend family fun” emails for ideas for things to do on the weekend. Thank you! However, we noticed that some of your emails come on Sunday mornings and we miss some cool and interesting stuff that take place on Saturdays, such as this email. Is it possible for you to send the email on Fridays? We would really appreciate it. If for some reason you can’t, we understand. Thank you for all that you do for the community.

      Thank you for your comment! Yes, I’ve been a bit behind in the timing of weekend posts lately. They should be up by Friday morning, but sometimes it’s Saturday morning before they’re up here and on Facebook… When that happens, the email doesn’t go out until the next day. If you’re looking for weekend stuff and you didn’t get the email, try checking here on the site,am d I will try to get back to our goal of Friday mornings!
