CHA Newsletter for September 15th, 2006

Welcome to the latest edition of the online newsletter.  We are up and running, with all league schedules posted. 

Here's a brief newsletter to highlight some odds and ends.


President's Message on Home Page

New CHA President, Peter Lawlor, has posted an updated letter on the CHA Home page, please click here to read it.



Web Rep Volunteers Needed

We need one parent from each team to volunteer to be a web rep.  The functions include making necessary changes to the schedule, entering game scores and posting news to the Team Page.  Website Director Bill Kamenides will provide a one hour instruction on how to perform these functions, but it is as easy as using Microsoft Word, or sending email.  Training sessions will be scheduled over the next two weeks, and you can attend one which fits your schedule.  Web Reps who have held this role before do not need to go to the training again, but are invited in case they'd like a refresher.  To volunteer to be a web rep, please email Bill at .
