Washington Grove is moving to a new community listserv. Yahoo will be ending its support for group listservs on December 15, so Shelley Winkler and Christine Dibble, who manage the WG Yahoo Group, will move the group to a Google Groups listserv to replace it. This is not a Town-sanctioned or official listserv, but simply a town neighborhood chat group. Google Groups can accommodate hundreds of members and is free. You do not need to have a Google/Gmail account in order to send or receive emails using this group.

During the next few weeks, we will make everyone who is currently a member of the Yahoo Group, a member of the new Google Group. Once we have made you a member, you will receive an email from “WG Neighborhood Listserv (Google Group)” welcoming you. If you wish to opt out, there is a link in the welcoming email to do so.

The new address to email the group will be [email protected]. However, once you have been added to the group, do not use that address quite yet. We will keep using the Yahoo Group until early December, and once everyone is on board, will shut down that group and start using the new one.

Please email Shelley and/or Christine (a) if you are not currently a member of the Yahoo Group, but wish to join the new Google Group, or (b) if you have any questions about this process. Our emails are in the Town Directory. Please do not contact the Town office, as this is not a Town communication tool.

Thank you for your patience and working with us through this change!
