Moultonboro Sounding Board

Some  folks have asked about some sort of bulletin board feature on the blog and just yesterday I was told about the "Sandwich Board" which is a place where locals tell others about things that are happening in town and elsewhere. I looked into it and found it was a Yahoo Group and fairly easy to set up .....and not time consuming to run. So welcome to Moultonboro Sounding Board!

Other than the membership approval, the site belongs to you. A few caveats. 
All members should be willing to identify themselves to the rest of the membership. NO anonymous posting.  Membership must be approved so you need to join with a valid email and real name.
When you sign up, you can post announcements, reminders, whatever you want your community to know about simply by sending an email with the information to: MoultonboroSoundingBoard@yahoogroups.com

When you post something, members receive an email with your post. It's as simple as that.
Say you want to let a lot of people know right away that a meeting venue has been changed. Just email it to the above address and everyone who is a member of the Moultonboro Sounding Board will get the message. 

Here are some examples from Sandwich I received today:
  • Meet the Candidates

    A REMINDER - You are invited to "Meet the Candidates" on the November 4 ballots tomorrow, October 26 at 3 p.m. at the Methodist Meetinghouse on Main Street in

It's easy to join. When you go to Moultonboro Sounding Board, click on the "Join" icon.
Have at it and please join and let your friends know. Sandwich has about 1200 members and I think we can do better than that here in Moultonboro.
I am still learning the in's and out's of this, but I will answer any questions I can or find out the answer as we move along.
