I don’t know about you, but I love the feeling of opening up my new paper calendar and seeing lots of empty spaces (yes, I’m old-fashioned and still use a paper calendar….) With that in mind, here’s a look at a variety of events coming up this month as well as some bigger events later on that you won’t want to miss:

Schenck is hosting several free 90-minute workshops on QuickBooks/Peachtree updates next month. The events provide a look at the new features within the 2011 QuickBooks and Peachtree by Sage programs. The workshops will have one room dedicated to QuickBooks and another room dedicated to Peachtree updates and attendees may choose which session they would like to attend.  All workshops run from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Dates and locations are: Jan. 4 at Butte des Morts Country Club, Appleton; Jan. 5 at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, Manitowoc (Manitowoc hosting QuickBooks update only); Jan. 6 at Pine Hills Country Club, Sheboygan; Jan. 7 at La Sure’s Hall, Oshkosh; and Jan. 13 at the Holiday Inn of Fond du Lac.
