WANTED: WEBSITE CONTENT DIRECTOR

Dear PMSC Members,

Since early Spring of this year, there has been no one person responsible for updating and curating the pmsc.on.ca website .

I stepped down from the post after several years of collecting and updating information on events, meetings and other important documentation relating to your club and posting them.

Because I have limited skill sets in maintaining the website, I hoped someone would pick up the task using the basic foundation created by a previous, more-talented, website creator.

So, if you are able and interested in contributing to the PMSC web presence, please contact President Dan Demers  at:  ddemers67@gmail.com       

Len Arminio

Secretary,

Peterborough Motor Sports Club, Inc.
