We had many technical issues last week that were out of our control. So this newsletter is a combination of last week and this week. You can expect the next newsletter on 11/17. STEPS has many exciting things being planned for the upcoming season, many reasons to get out and enjoy the community around you. As always we would love to talk with you about ideas you may have, or if you are new to STEPS point you in the right direction of groups and projects that you might like to participate in. We currently have 3 focus groups that meet ; Increasing Economic & Educational Opportunities , Improving the Physical Environment, and Improving Personal Health and Wellness. All 3 groups would welcome new members. Contact the STEPS office at (607)403-0069 or Stepscommunity@s2aynetwork.org . If you have any news or community activities that you would like included in the next weekly update please email them to Lynne Doyle at email@example.com. Information needs to be sent prior to 12 p.m. Tuesday 11/15 to be included.
