REGISTRATION FOR EVENTS:
As you know, registration is available for most events prior to the event date. Your registration helps us to plan for attendance, supplies and staffing. This planning is crucial in making sure that all of our events are fun, quality events for our members, guests and community. It also ensures that we are able to wisely budget for events.
Without registration we may have to decrease the quantity and caliber of the events we offer. We don't want that to happen. How can you do your part? Please register ASAP for events you plan to attend.
We currently have many events available for registration at www.LFwired.org/register. Please check back often as we will continue to add new events as their registration is available.
