River Region January Activities

There isn't a lot going on in January, so I am trying something new this time and I will see how it goes. I am putting all the events for January in one post and will update it as I find new things. That way it will be easy to look at all of January at a glance and to look back next year and see what was going on in January. (I don't know why but I like to do stuff like that.)

Plus, I just spent an hour typing all of this on the Calendar page only to have it not save and dissappear. (When I type it in a post it saves automatically.)
