Our website Joomla upgrade migration will begin today - Tuesday May 12.

Any posts put on the Forum from now until the process is complete could potentially be lost. There is no problem with doing postings, but if it's something you want to keep on the site forever, it may just need to be re-posted when the migration is finished if you find it has disappeared.

Everything that is in place on the website as of today should not be affected.

It's like upgrading our behind the scenes operating system to a new version of Windows or IOS, only it may take 1 to 2 weeks and requires a lot of hands on work and testing - not as easy as tapping a "GO" button.

The upgraded website has been "turned on". Any forum postings during the interim week that disappeared will need to be re-posted if you want.
If you find anything not working right, let me or Joann know.

WOW - The website upgrade is so much better ... it's a lot faster! It seams to be behaving like other websites/foums in regards to my iPhone now too (finally)!!

Too bad some posts were lost but the lost posts were well worth the end results, THANKS to everybody that got this done!

Yes, it's defiantly faster. I like the link on the calendar where we now have a link to directly add events to our personal Google of Outlook calendar with a single click.
Thanks to everybody that had a hand in improving our web site.

I did notice a missing forum post from Don. It was about a breakfast this Saturday 5/30/15 at Brown's Country Kitchen, 1149 West Portersville Road, Portersville, PA 16051 at 10:00 AM. Mary and I are planning on going, but right now there showing 60% of scattered Thunderstorms so we'll have to check the weather Saturday morning.
