Heres a few things I can look into to adding to this script to allow us to do more with it.
Calendar, for the events page I currently have them listed in a list type of view. https://github.com/ahmontero/bootstrap-calendar
makes a nice calendar that could work unless I find another onehttp://www.saaraan.com/
also has some good codes / tutorials for PayPal Payments
I need to finish setting up the newsletter script, so whenever we post an event, or news post we send an email out to people that wish to recieve emails. To do this I need to figure out if I want to use the default php server mail servers, or use something like phpMailer to send out the emails. I believe the mailer might be a little better tho as we wont have to worry about some of those messages coming up in the spam folder.
