It would be very helpful for some people if you wouldn't mind including
the actual name of the day(s) of the week (for example: Nov 1 Thursday.) As many people don't know 2 weeks from now whether Nov 16 will be a Sunday or
a Wednesday. Thanks. Just trying to help you make your event notices
more user friendly.
