Dear Members
Here’s the latest and greatest news that you’re anticipating from your fellow members. Don’t forget, if you have news to share send them to this address <>. Put something in the subject like like “WAAL news to share” so that it does not get mistaken for something else. Make sure it arrives a day or so before the next announcement. Keep the news item simple. Plain text is best. If there are images or documents to attach make sure they are sized for web use. Please don’t send ready to print type files as they are usually way too big to share in email. If there is a web page containing your information include the URL. It’s the best and easiest way to share information as it comes right from the official source.
The next planned announcement is on or about: September 18.
Now for that news!
