They didn't learn ya anything in school about "its" and "it's" did they? "It's" is not possessive - it is ALWAYS a contraction for "it is." This is the sentence snippet from above: "...of the year at it's annual Community..." The way to figger out which to use is to expand the contraction, thusly: "...of the year at IT IS annual Community..." Doesn't sound quite right does it?

They did... but thanks for pointing out the typo so thoroughly. It's been fixed!
