Running DNN_Events_06.02.02_Install on DNN CE version 07.03.04.

I have a "family website" portal using the events module to display various events including annually recurring events such as birthdays and anniversaries - these obviously have no end date (at least until a death), but the way I have it, it appears like I am predicting "the end".
I have the settings configured as follows:
Recurring Event - "checked"
Recurrence End Date: - (as this is required for a recurring event, I have set it as far in advance as it will allow, which for the year is "2099"
Periodic Event - Repeated every: "1 Year" 

All works as expected except when a user clicks the event link (in the monthly view, for example), it displays something like:

Recurring Event Every year on 10 March until 3/10/2099 (total 84 events)

Is there any way to properly enter a recurring event when there is no known "end date"? - the display looks more like an epitaph on a tombstone.<g> It's been a few years since I have used the events module, but I don't remember having this issue in the past.  I am guessing there are many situations with recurring events that have no known end date. In the example of birthdays or anniversaries, it just doesn't look very professional the way I have it. Am I entering it incorrectly or can this be resolved with a template?

Thanks in advance,

Rick Bradbury
