March newsletter

Happy Spring Equinox!

Didn’t the year just turn? Well we are moving into Spring with an exciting array of events and projects in the works. After a busy 2011, we have had some down time and are gearing back up for some great things. First thing you’ll notice is the new emailer format. I have switched to using MailChimp (yeah, I like the name :). Hopefully the switchover will be glitch free as I work out the monkeys. This email is a test run. Please let me know how you like the new format or if you notice any issues. I still keep the emails to approximately monthly, with occasional special announcements, so you’re not bombarded. I am one to unsubscribe from lists that send daily or even weekly emails repeating all the same stuff.
