October 2018 Presentations

Thanks to my Johnson County Historical Society school programs October is shaping up to be a busy month. 🙂

As a heads up, October is pretty much booked. I still take bookings for November and the first week or so of December, but after that I’m closed down until the last half of March. I’ve just had to cancel too many programs during those months over the years. [The weather could be bad on this end, or that end, or this spring for Urbandale it was fine on both ends and an ice storm halfway between parked on I-80. Some cancellations do happen, but we try to avoid it. 😉 ]

The Humanities Iowa program is a great deal, but they only allow me so many slots a year. Several have been taken already. So if you’re interested for 2019 let me know as soon as you can.

Just because I have those Humanities slots doesn’t mean you can’t book direct. I’ve actually had more direct bookings this year than I have in years. Get in touch for specifics. info@trundlebedtales.com

Online Scheduling Tool

You know that tip of your tongue feeling, when you KNOW something, but you’ll be danged if you can think of it? One of those things is a free program that lets multiple people give a schedule to find a meeting time where the most people in your group can meet. You know you’ve used it before, but you just can’t remember what it’s called so you can’t find it. Next time, remember you can find it here.

The tool you might be looking for is Doodle:

Anyone can use this free system without creating an account. Just enter the information about your meeting, possible dates and times, and – if you want to e-mail it to people – their e-mails. Otherwise you can just send around the link. This system is much easier than dealing with a flood of e-mails trying to set up a time.

You probably have used it already, as a meeting attendee if not as someone setting it up, but remember the next time you need to schedule a meeting and can’t remember the name of that program, that website, that app, you can find it here.
