Have you missed getting community messages via the Friends of Orono Schools e-mail list for the past several months? That is because the system needed to be updated. Thanks to the University of Maine IT professionals who manage lists for campus and community, the transition is now (we hope!) complete.
This is a test message to make sure the new mailing list is operational. It is being sent to all members of the original list, as well as others who have expressed interest in receiving school and community information.
A couple of formalities to be aware of, if you do indeed get this message, and wish to post to the list:
- We have a long history of civil discourse using this mailing list for community information exchange. Please respect that tradition as you communicate with our neighbors on the list and with the individuals who donate their time to manage it.
- Please use the list only for sharing information of interest to the community, particularly as relates to educational activities, and not for personal messages.
- Please do NOT send attachments with postings to the list.
- If you are not yet subscribed to the list, or if you have friends or neighbors who would like to be included on the list, please send a subscription request to
Watch for community news coming your way soon!
Meanwhile, if you have questions about the mailing list or your subscription, please feel free to contact me at
Thanks -- and keep warm!
