 Announcements – A page with information on upcoming events or general information on club.



3.
 News – A page with information on what has happened in the club.

5.
 Club Officers – Listing of club officers



6.
 Photos – A page to put photos of projects and events

To see a sample website go on to www.gcfm.org; go under About/District & Club/Northern/ Open Gate and you will see a template of what a site might look like.  This offer is open to any Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts club. 

COST:  $25.00 initial fee; covers setting up the site and the first year’s fee.  If you require GCFM to maintain your website the cost is $30 a year with  no more than 3 updates per year.  If you maintain your own site the cost is $15 per year.   Web sites will be billed and due January 1 of each year.    The year runs January 1 to December 31.  Your 3 updates sent as complete packages should be sent to Lyn Hoyt at gcfm@verizon.net.

MAINTAINENCE OF THE SITE: Once the site is set up, your club may either choose to have  GCFM  maintain the site, by sending information directly to gcfm, or if you have someone in your club that is computer savvy, you may choose to maintain and put your own information on the site.  If this is the case, you will be given a password by the web designer to be able to get in and work on your section of the site.
