Our end-of-summer slow down has arrived. End of September, end of summer! Because so many hours and offerings have changed with the season I’m listing the Daily/Weekly items I typically put at the top of all our printed guest-versions of these calendars.

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
