Welcome to our Group's New Website
Please be patient as we finish updating the site with latest information. This site is for our members and our local community, and produced by our members. It is an important vehicle to connect with our local community around issues we care deeply about. We are in need of volunteers to help maintain the site and add content. The new site is easy to edit but you can help by just providing content that can be dropped in. If interested in helping and/or contributing content, send a note to Peter Gorr at email@example.com.
