NaNo Staff Appreciation Day! http://nanowrimo.org/forums/all-ages-coffee-house/threads/404526
The staff and mods works so very hard, both during November and beyond, that they too deserve a day to be appreciated and celebrated. The goal is to combine our efforts and let them know just how much we appreciate everything they do and how much NaNo means to us.
There are so many regions, we're directing ppl to just a few threads. So head on over to the one I linked to say thanks :)

Kickoff Events are being added to the calendar. Remember to try and RSVP when you can. And if you're hosting one, post a thread (with city name) in the forums!

Local events across the province? Yes, of course! Find or create a thread for your community in the forum, and plan a local event. Because BC is so huge, the MLs can't be everywhere, but we will offer support and help promote your events.

What you need is a date, time, and location. The location must be accessible to all ages and not require payment to participate - libraries and coffee shops are excellent. Once you have settled those three things, post your event details on the forum, and your event will be added to the regional calendar!

No cash? There are other ways you can help us out!
