We have been offering this service for a few years now and many people find it useful. Some find it invaluable. So what is it? We send text messages about important events in Frankford directly to your cell phone. Reminders about important meetings and events are the most common thing we use it for. If you sign up for the service, you will get a reminder about the meeting the day of the meeting. In some cases like last week when the movie night in Overington park was cancelled due to weather, we sent a notice out right away. Also last week when the police cancelled the PSA meeting we sent out a notice on that.
We also get questions about events and we answer all inquiries.
It will only work on your cell phone. If you have to pay for each text message you get, you might want to think about that before signing up. On the other hand if your text messages are free, then it costs you nothing.
To sign up you only have to text the word JOIN to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. (It doesn’t look like a phone number but it works). It is anonymous and once you sign up you can always send a message to remove your number.
This is just one more way to communicate.
