*While most upcoming events are likely to occur at the listed times, we will send out communications and RSVPs prior to each which will serve as concrete confirmation of schedule.

**We will create RSVP forms for many events. In the case of catered events, this is required for us to gauge how much food to order (and occasionally take individual orders), but otherwise this is an optional, low-commitment RSVP that just gives us an idea of how many people to expect.
