TEAL BY THE MONTH - A Monthly overview of what's coming up

Hi All, 

In order to make the Home Page of Ovd a bit more succinct, I'm rolling all the  monthly reminders into this section. So monthly you'll be able to see what is on the horizon to make note of, along with links to more information and registration where that is required in order to participate.  Hope this works for everyone.
