Signs of spring surround us and that means we're just going to get busier and busier. All this warm weather has got us heading outdoors more and more, whether it's to take care of chores we've put off until the snow melted or to get some shirt-sleeve fishing in while the sun is out.

Events also begin to pick up as we look toward day and evening events that start to fill up our spring and summer calendars. Good weather or bad, there will be plenty of things to do until next fall.

In an effort to help families with that planning we've published our Youth Guide in this week's Valley Journal. The Youth Guide includes a very useful calendar of events that cover fun stuff all the way through September. 

We'll be refining and adding to that events calendar as we prepare to produce our Summer Guide in May, so we invite you to keep us informed of any events you have coming up that wasn't previously included. If you're involved in organizing an open-to-the-public, non-profit activity that's coming up, send the details of your event to and we'll shoehorn the overview of your event into our calendar section.

It's a good idea to keep the Youth Guide on hand at your home or office as a ready reference throughout the spring and summer. But we've also included the calendar of events portion on our web site in order to keep it handy for everyone.

You can navigate to the Summer Calendar from our home page ( by clicking on the button at the bottom of the left column, below the weather and "more news" section. You can also go directly to the calendar by entering the following page in your browser:

We'll keep the Summer Calendar up-to-date with new additions and changes as they develop. As always, send all your calendar items to Aleta, our copy editor, at
