Changes to the Essex Heritage Web Site
The signature event offered by Essex Heritage each year is: Trails and Sails...A Weekend of Walks and Water. Every year we have tried to improve the way clients are serviced. This year an electronic change has been prepared that we believe will make this September event even more customer friendly. Right now on the Essex Heritage web site registered participants can begin to pre-plan their weekend by signing on and creating and printing itineraries and registering for events. Just before the event on September 26-28, Essex Heritage will send an e-mail reminder to participants to help them with scheduling. We are pleased that these technical improvements have been made and that they will allow Trails and Sails participants more latitude to plan and reschedule as their needs change.

The message she sent is self explanatory as we are pleased to print the message as follows:
