Updated screening schedule including Flyway, Creighton University and Little Rock AR

Thanks to everyone that made our recent Washington DC trip so memorable.  To think that 3 months ago, Janina and Brian were in Poland,  and last week we were all together touring the US Capitol, and screening the film for Congress is a little mind blowing!
