    Hi! I love, love, love this website! I am so happy that I happened upon it. I did however notice that there are no events for Zeta Phi Beta listed. The Founders day celebration is January 16th, 2020 and there are events occurring in in Washington D.C. at Howard University from the 16th to the 19th. 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the organization. The Centennial Boule is from June 23-28, 2020.

    I’m really excited to hear about the Cincinnati MusicFest for all ages, brought to us by Berrywise Enterprise! It’s fantastic to see an event that caters to music lovers of all generations. Music truly has the power to bring people together, and with a festival like this, it’s a great opportunity for families and friends to bond over their favorite tunes. I can’t wait to see the lineup and the range of musical genres they’ll have. Kudos to Berrywise Enterprise for making music accessible to everyone in Cincinnati!
