  1. Russ & John Great elegant header. Suggest adding a tab for NEWSLETTERS. Also … where will a list/calendar of GIG dates fit? perhaps a tab EVENTS that could accommodate other Simcoe jazz events as well.

    • A NEWSLETTER tab is a great idea. I can do that. (Right now we a history of Newsletters on the Figleaf web site). Did you request phone numbers of the committee be deleted? I did that, but one thing to keep in mind is that Newsletters will have phone numbers.
      An EVENTS tab already exists. Currently it is linked to my Google calendar just to demonstrate that capability, but it could just be a simple list of any events. Were there other suggestions for content?
