Savvy social media – workshop

Due to the time change, this web coordinator / blogger is wilting and is therefore too tired to exercise literary prowess and offer witty epithets about this post.

Please forgive the cut / paste, but here are the details of this special double session on social media.

Getting Started with Social Media

    Hey Sarah,
    Thanks so much for putting the word out. Hope you’ve bounced back from the time change (especially with all the sun we’ve been getting). Hey, if all else fails, try chocolate!
