FishersIsland.net is an important communications resource for the Fishers Island community. The content – text, news, calendar, links and photos, milestones and more – create an image of the island and serves as an important resource for information – to those on and off island.
With an anticipated launch in early January 2014, the redesign, with a fresh modern look, will incorporate new features and improve overall content organization and usability. This website upgrade will allow us to produce and send a weekly (seasonally bi-weekly) Fog Horn eNewsletter to all sub-scribers (and produce a printable version for those who wish to receive it).
The website content and eNewsletters will be managed by a local part-time editor who is coordinating the site redesign and will be responsible for editing and writing the ongoing content and eNewsletters.
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 will be available shortly.
The current site will remain in place until we switch over. It is a good resource for calendar events and announcements.
