If you are shocked and awed by the massive disruption to life as you have known it, you are not alone. Back in March, this forecast of upcoming events became irrelevant almost overnight.
Looking to the future, hours and hours have been spent rescheduling scores of events for later dates. Let’s hope those plans come to pass, and we are able to reconvene in person. Meanwhile, for May, here are some extremely worthwhile happenings shaping up for anyone who’s able to travel online. For the few physical events listed below, please double check direct sources for up-to-date info.
As 2020 continues, here’s hoping for fewer troubles, and more good times for us all.
