Build Your Own Website
If you’ve always wanted to have your own website – one that you can do the updates easily yourself, why not join us on June 14th at the County Administration Building in Woodstock. The cost is $100 for this full day OCCI workshop. Bring your photos, bio and whatever else that you would like to place on your website to this course instructed by John Novak. We are limiting the class size to six so we may give everyone as mush attention as they need. I will also be there helping John for the full day. We will be building a Weebly site. These sites are extremely easy to update and maintain. This is a free website with no annual fees. (I have built Weebly websites myself so I can help you out if you have any future issues.) You will leave at the end of the day with a completed website that you can manage easily yourself. If you are interested, please give me a call to discuss details. 519-777-1374. We have 2 spaces left.
