New Magnet for Newcomers

tem magnet 14Last year, everyone in Temelec received a refrigerator magnet with contact information. The order of 320 just about took care of all the homes in Temelec. Thinking that a magnet would be a nice addition to a package welcoming newcomers, I talked to Gayle Crawford, president of the Social Club, and got her go-ahead to redesign the magnet and fund a new batch. Here’s the new design featuring the lovely watercolor in the bar room of the Hall.

Happy Easter!

New Website Design

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 1.07.08 PMThe website was in need of an update in order to make it “responsive” to different screen sizes. The new design will load better on a tablet and smartphone.

I have also changed the color palette to give it a cleaner look. Click on the heading to view. Hope you like it.
