Autumn in Dunnottar

After a fun filled summer the Community Club season is now over.
I would be glad to train a few Dunnottar Community Club volunteers to update this website next summer, preferably when programming gets going in July 2014 or earlier.  That way we can have more interesting posts and pictures!  And volunteers can get some experience with social media other than facebook.
Time for the youth to take over!  Please contact me if interested.  wendy at  wbuelow@shaw.ca
