    hmmm, confused; I’m on SWHS email list, but first I’ve even heard of this event

      It’s on their website and SWSHS asked us to promote it before the RSVP deadline – we make no guarantees beyond putting events in our calendar, but I happened to have a spot to post it here this morning, so I did. Can’t speak to the mailing list – but I’m sure Clay and/or his volunteers could check to be sure you’re still on the list. – TR
