Hammond 130 Party Plan Timeline


This page is a TODO list and road-map for the Hammond 130 birthday party that is being held at the Hammond Community Centre on August 17 from 12 – 4 PM. The list gets updated periodically, with major updates happening after our periodic planning meetings. Things get added, removed and moved around, so don’t expect it to be written in stone.
