The Newsletter Is Coming!

We announced to our subscribers a few weeks ago that we would be making a newsletter that will be sent out twice a week to those who OPT IN.  That newsletter is now on the cusp of being reality.  On Friday, we will send out the first HOOS Place Newsletter.

Starting now, everybody can add his or her email address to the list.  If you are a Hoo Friend subscriber, use the Account page (click “Account” in the top right corner of your screen, or on the ‘Menu’ at the top if you are on your phone) and the menu option.  For those of you who have not subscribed, you will find “Newsletter” at the top right corner of your screen or in the ‘Menu’ at the top of your phone’s display.  Use that to add your email address.

However you add your name and email, the process is easily reversed if you change your mind by using the same route you used to opt IN.

So add yourself to the newsletter distribution list now and don’t miss another article!
