We have started off The 2013 season with a new and exicting website. Scott Fichter at Blue Fox Creative suggested that we employ a content management system called WordPress. This software will allow our staff to make updates to the site quickly and easily. This new access will bring great value to you because the site will be updated at a higher frequency. We will no longer need a third party to make updates to the site. Just about every element of the site can be updated from our offices.
Below is a summary about WordPress and what makes it super cool.
On this site you can download and install a software script called WordPress. To do this you need a web host who meets the minimum requirements and a little time. WordPress is completely customizable and can be used for almost anything. There is also a service called WordPress.com which lets you get started with a new and free WordPress-based blog in seconds, but varies in several ways and is less flexible than the WordPress you download and install yourself.
What You Can Use WordPress For
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination. (And tech chops.)
Help Needed to Set The Social Calendar
2012’s Social calendar will be tough to top. Chris DiPaolo is up to it this year. We will announce shortly the social schedul, but we need your help to make it a success! Would you like to assist with the Kids/Teen Parties? Family Night? The Wine Tasting? Bingo?
Please contact Chris Di Paolo @ chris [at] dldipaolo [dot] com to offer your help, or to inquire about any of our social activities!
YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
The Green Woods Swim Club hosts a variety of social events throughout the summer season. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest members will have something fun planned for them this summer!
Please keep your eyes on the bulletin board at the pool, this is where volunteer lists and sign-up sheets for these events will be posted as the summer progresses. These events are a great opportunity to get involved, meet new members and have fun with friends. We throw both parent & kids parties during the summer where games, dancing, eating and laughter abound!! The dates and times for these events and a handful of other activities are all on the summer calendar and again we encourage all to keep abreast of upcoming events by checking the bulletin board at the pool frequently.
Green Woods Club owns several portable charcoal grills for our memberships use (except on the scheduled party dates). Please utilize these and our picnic area for your families next BBQ! There are trash barrels located about the picnic area to help maintain the tidy appearance of our club. Please help to keep our pool litter free.
Looking forward to seeing you this summer at Green Woods!
