Outreach/Newsletter

From Green Needham
Jump to: navigation, search


The Green Needham Newsletter is being coordinated by Tad Staley, with help from Michael Greis. We would welcome volunteers who would be willing to provide content by writing short articles.


  • The Newsletter is created and distributed with Constant Contact.
  • We aim to send out a newsletter every month.
  • The newsletter is intended to coordinate with the web page. We have been replicating news items from the newsletter on the web page.
  • Each newsletter should include:
  • 2 - 4 short items, with one or two sentences of text, a link to a longer article on the wiki and perhaps an image
  • Each may be a news item, an accomplishment, past event or an upcoming event
  • A short "Did you know?" item or factoid -
  • There is room for an additional short item...ideas?
