PTO Mailing List

Lorie and Willa have done a great job building and maintaining the PTO's e-mail list, but updating it to reflect its members' changing e-mail addresses can be a challenge. We think it is time to take another step forward and migrate the mailing list to avenue.org. This will help simplify the management of the list and ensure that all PTO mailings are always sent to the same group of addresses.

Soon you will begin receiving PTO-related mailings through avenue.org courtesy of the "Greenbrier PTO Mailing List" (a/k/a pto.frogblog@gmail.com). Be on the look-out for the new messages! Occasionally, users have reported that these messages wind up in their "spam" folder, so check there occasionally for PTO messages. If you find a PTO message in your spam folder, just add the sender to your "approved" list or otherwise identify us as non-spammers. Don't worry, we won't try to sell you cut rate pharmaceuticals, approve your loan application, or wire the king of Nigeria's money to you - ha ha. All kidding aside, though, the new list will not be used for commercial purposes, and avenue.org will not share your e-mail address with anyone else.

For safety reasons we have established the list as a "closed" mailing list - meaning that the PTO must approve additions to the list and address changes. If you need to update the e-mail address you have on file with the PTO, please e-mail pto.frogblog@gmail.com with the new information. If you have any other questions about the new mailing list, please get in touch with Lorie, Willa, Sabra Timmins or me, and we can give you more information.
