In Times to Come
Please report any errors, and any relevant events which are not listed but are in or near New England or otherwise of interest to NESFA® members, to calendar@nesfa.org.
In addition to the activities listed here, some NESFA members gather at the clubhouse almost every Wednesday evening to work, socialize, and play games (usually Dominion). The building is almost always open between 6 pm and 10 pm on Wednesday evenings, and often later.  When the weather is inclement, please call 617-625-2311 to make sure that there are people at the clubhouse before showing up.
The dumpster will be emptied every two weeks on Thursdays.  We have a new service company.
Please leave a clear path to the dumpster, and plenty of clear space around it on pickup days.
Upcoming dumpster pickup dates are Apr 9 & 23, May 7 & 21, Jun 4 & 18, Jul 2, 16, & 30, Aug 13 & 27, Sep 10 & 24, Oct 8 & 22, Nov 5 & 19, and Dec 3, 17, & 31.
The clubhouse is cleaned on Friday every fourth week by professional cleaners.
Please schedule your activities so as not to interfere with their work.
