This is a sample e-News post for Benton County Master Gardeners.

This post would replace the bi-weekly e-News being sent by OSU from the MailChimp service.

The same content would be shared but in a different format (announcements on new volunteer opportunities and continuing education classes, updates from the OSU Master Gardener Program, BCMGA links, community news.)

All current Master Gardener volunteers would be emailed a link to this page from Elizabeth as a BCC every other week. This would eliminate the use of MailChimp, simplify the process for OSU Staff/Faculty, and reduce chances of errors by only maintaining one list of current OSU volunteers.

This would also bring all of the OSU volunteer information onto a single website instead of having it be dispersed in multiple emails.
