CRESTVIEW — With the Blue Jean Ball, the library book sale, the Community Health Fair, the International Festival, corn mazes, Crestview High's stage comedy "Dear Ruth," foot races and the Fall Festival, the October community events calendar is bursting with activities.

With so much planned for autumn's cooler days, Rae Schwartz, Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce Arts and Culture Committee chairwoman, said organizations have had conflicts with other planned events.

Using the chamber's online calendar — on which all of the area's events are listed in one place — when planning activities can help avoid those conflicts, Schwartz said.

"I've had several people tell me they have started looking at the calendar either to see what's going on or to make sure the event they want to put on it isn't in conflict with anything else," she said.

Listing a club, association or organization's meetings or events is free, and chamber membership is not required, Schwartz said.  

The chamber is also compiling a roster of all open-membership community organizations for a spring 2014 expo of area clubs, societies and associations.

"The expo will be a great opportunity for people to find out about what's available," Schwartz said. "Maybe they'll find interests they didn't know they even had."
