    Thank you Maggie! I’m glad you find my site useful. What a nice thing to say! :)

  2. As someone who enjoys little town activities, I am very impressed with the gathering of Little Indiana information and activities. I live in Illinois and often journey to outings around the area in search of fun, good food and vintage/antique items. It looks very much like Little Indiana folks “got it together” and that makes a lot of sense. Don’t remember exactly where I came across your name/website, but glad I did! Thanks.

  3. I don’t normally get started on the calendar until November. The calendar does scroll forward…but I don’t think there is too much on there yet. Is there a particular event you are looking for? I might be able to track it down for you. Thanks.

  4. Do you have listings for 2012-2013?
