Southeast Colorado Springs Community Calendar

Editor’s note: Over the course of two years and interviews with hundreds of Southeast leaders, organizational representatives and residents, we have consistently heard the need for a single, consolidated destination for community-engagement events, training sessions, volunteer opportunities and family friendly outings. We are delighted to present to you the Express’ community calendar. This calendar will run both in publication and online, with the express intention of helping you to plan and maximize your and your family’s free time.
