Shouldn't all the obsolete information on 5 Things To Do for weeks already gone past be deleted? Like Jan. 31-Feb 4; Feb. 7-11; Feb. 21-27; etc. Since it is no longer possible to participate in these events, all this is now just clutter. I think one of the great features about Patch is that it is current (or, at least, can be). Please keep it that way by policing its content on an up-to-date basis. Thank you. Ken Martim

That would make no sense to delete an article. Since these events are placed in a new article every week, there is no confusion as long as you click on the most recent article. I also think they should be kept for historical purposes, you wouldn't delete a newspaper archive would you just because the day has past? In a year or two or more if somebody is looking for information on one of these events this article would provide that information. I say keep these up, and just look at the dates, it's not that difficult.
