Raleigh's Deaf Night Out (DNO)
Hosted by Chris Pape via fb
Two DNO events a month except in November and December
Both held at different locations and if posted in advance, we will post on the front page
What makes this hard to follow is a page is created for each event instead of using a single public page and adding an event as they go along, it goes like this:
Raleigh's DNO Oct Event #2
 Raleigh's DNO Oct Event #1
Raleigh's Dno's November event
Inconsistent and HARD to follow
Should stay with the original = Raleigh's Dno which was started in 2007, it would be a lot easier to find instead of changing name for every event
Just saying
 

Shelby
