Reaching Over 20,000 People Every Week

The Valley East Today Electronic Newsletter has been very well received by the "virtual community" to which it is being delivered each week. I also know that it is being forwarded to thousands of people each week who find one or more items that may be of interest to the friends and acquaintances in their address book. The residents of Valley East and its neighbour, Capreol, have a profound influence on the City of Greater Sudbury. Just about everyone living in this region either knows someone; works with someone; or goes to school with someone who lives in Valley East. Therefore what happens in Valley East and Capreol becomes important to everyone. Over the next several months we expect the Valley East Today Community Web Site and Electronic Newsletter to take on an even larger role in the growth and development of Valley East. Awareness is critical to keeping a community alive and we are convinced that the internet will provide us with the fuel to help Valley East take on a true leadership role in developing a positive image for the entire City of Greater Sudbury. I hope you enjoy the feature articles and stories that are highlighted in this edition of the Electronic Newsletter. If you find anything that you think might be of interest to any friends and acquaintances that may be in your own "address book"  please forward va this message to them. With your help we expect the Valley East Today Electronic Newsletter to reach over 20,000 people each week. For more about the Valley East Today Community Web Site>>>
