News in and around the Neighborhood

Dear Neighbors,

First of all thank you for your patience during this past month as we have been making changes to the web site. Thanks to Steve Kelly and Christopher Tysh, the web site has been transferred to a new web host. We are humbly grateful for their devotion to get the job done correctly, particularly since this was a volunteer effort. There have been other changes made with more on the way. Hopefully, this should not affect your ability to view the web site.
