Website Update

Maria Sullivan, our former Webmaster/Communications officer moved to Mexico last December. In addition to managing the Website, she also published our newsletter, the Pelican Prattle. We thank her for her dedication and for all the work she did for the Club.

Jose Saez is temporarily taking care of the Website, but the position of Webmaster/Communications officer is open. We need a volunteer that wants to practice or learn new computer skills.

In the meantime, we are changing the way we communicate with our members:

The Pelican Prattle is no longer being published.
All club news are now posted in the front page of the Website.
Club officers with new content will keep the Website up to date.
Members should check the Website ( napleswalkingclub.org ) at least once a week.
