It has been both a privilege and a labor of love to be your web servant for the past couple of years. I remember inheriting it at a time when there was no one left to walk me through the various challenges of developing a site. As with so much that is AA, we learn and grow through practice and that is what I've tried to do in this particular service position. The District has always been supportive and forgiving of my shortcomings and for that, I am truly grateful.
I'll miss this gig, but I know the District will be well served by our incoming web servant, JC.
Thanks for the opportunity to give back to a group and a district and a program that has given me so much, for free and for fun. It's been a blast.
Once upon a time, I made some rash statements about changing over, perhaps, to WordPress. The idea was to cut costs and increase our ability to provide a better, more usable web site.
I'm running out of excuses and it looks like March/April is the time frame for migrating over. If you have any suggestions for what might make a better site, drop me a line at email@example.com or hit the Contact Us! page and let me know there. Thanks!!
After quite some time on our end of things, the District 46 schedule has been uploaded to the Area 72 website.

This new format has been the brainchild of a few, super-dedicated volunteers at the Area level, who took it upon themselves to finally construct a usable and user-friendly site.

I've added a calendar to the home page, which lists upcoming events. Click on the event for more information and links that either refer to a flyer and/or google map, which shows the location of the event. Let me know if you think it should be located elsewhere. Thanks!
Reworked the Trusted Servants page so that it now contains clickable phone numbers and email addresses. This works seamlessly on smart phones, but requires some additional effort if you're using your browser. On Macs, it's not a problem, Facetime pops up and will dial your numbers.
You need to install the chrome brower plug in called Google Voice in order to use it on PCs. You highlight the phone number and a dialog box opens. If you have Skype, that will pop up when you click on a phone link.
More meetings have been updated on our schedule, thanks for your input!
