Fishers Island has a new communication tool – the redesigned Fishers Island.net website and Fog Horn newsletter.
FishersIsland.net and the accompanying Fog Horn serve as the communications resource for the Fishers Island community. The content – news, calendar, links and photos, milestones, ads and more create a clear image of Fishers to those on and off island.
The website’s redesign incorporates a fresh modern look, new features and improved content organization and usability. This website upgrade allows us to produce and send the Fog Horn eNewsletter to all free of charge (and produce a printable version for those who wish to receive it).
Contributors are most welcome! We will continue to feature pieces by Museum Director Pierce Rafferty, gardening tips by contributor Melie Spofford and many more. Your photographs, stories and news will be welcome additions – be it a surf report, milestone, organization’s event, save the date, calendar event or other Fishers Island community news. Information on advertising your business and services on the new FishersIsland.net site and Fog Horn will be available shortly. We have incorporated current advertisers on the site and will continue to ‘tweak’ this feature. Meanwhile, visit the Island Directory and Island Website links for easy access to Island service providers, non-profits and businesses.
