Create a child page for each event. Title the page with this format:

MMDD - Event Name - Event Chair

 

These events were organized prior to formation of the committee, so no associated wiki page:

3/15 - 2018 Loudoun County Science and Technology Fair - Allon

3/18 - Maker Faire - Todd

 

Candidate Events

These events do not have a chair, or we have not finalized a decision to participate.  Once we decide to participate in an event it should move to the above section by creating a child page.
