CLNDR.js adding events into array from mongo within a helper

I’m trying to use CLNDR.js:

And the events it pulls from are assigned into an events array where i have being set in a helper for my template.

 var events = [
  { date: '01-01-2016', title: 'event name' },
  { date: '01-02-2016', title: 'event name 2' } ];

Is it possible within a client helper to set an array from my mongo document that would pull only the date and title fields to insert into this? I can’t find too many examples of this within a helper. Any guidance appreciated.

never mind i see that i can actually embed the events array inside my template instead of the helper which makes things a lot easier.
