Issues & Projects for October / November

  • Discovered a major glitch in the Calendar on 11/18 - multiple events just went missing. Sent in a tech support ticket right away, but they are slow to respond.
  • Met with Kate Kotan to review the information she learned at the financial seminar she attended that might be useful to WayNet.
  • Took vacation on October 25-26
  • Extra updates to keep "featured" section current during election, trick or treat, etc.
  • My computer continues to get slower / lock up and I spend a significant amount of time waiting for it to respond, rebooting, etc. This, in addition to the fact that Microsoft Windows 7 will no longer be supported by the end of the year means we need to get serious about a possible upgrade.

Photo Sessions:

  • 2019 Safety Village Trick or Treat
  • 2019 Veterans Day Parade
  • Fall Scenes

Website Maintenance:

  • Technical issues:
    • Several issues surrounding the calendar. Working with tech support.

    My To-Do List:

    • Still need to work on transferring data from Access into a Google Spreadsheet so we don't lose the information.
    • Website Overhaul - review log analysis, research technical options and trending layouts
    • Ongoing: Schedule guests for County Connections.
    • Ongoing: Make calls on members/potential members
