Neighbors helping neighbors

Several Islanders have suggested that I create this web page and a link to it in the "What's New?" ("footer") of all Island Net emails to remind subscribers about using the Island Net to post the following general and specific  volunteer services offered and wants/needs and/or. 

This web page compliments the "Hellow Pages" which is contains a listing of Island-wide organizations and businesses.

If you have Island friends or neighbors who are not on the Island Net, go to the bottom and print this page and give it to them. Tell them to type "" into their browser then click on the link  "Island Net"  in the left sidebar to subscribe.
