Newsletter #28 for June 7, 2011


You're on Facebook, right?

The statistics show that a good number of you, well more than half, have a personal Facebook account. Did you know that Facebook makes it really easy for you to keep in touch with the websites, brands, and organizations that matter to you?

One way you can support SmallWaterSupply.org is by liking our Facebook page. We're working hard to grow a community around supporting operators with relevant, free information.

Facebook is one of our outposts for connecting with that community. In addition to sharing our latest blog posts and newsletters, we post useful links, let you know where we're speaking and ask questions about you!
