Also the Planning Calendars will not be delivered to our office until after July 18, 2018.  They are all ordered so we cannot take any new orders at this time. I will let you know if we have any left over. Reason for the delay, the printers had made a big mistake and they all had to be reprinted, so that is why the delay.    Joan Admin
