Communication Issue Warning!!

Hello Friends,

While I have maintained the posts for this blog for the last few years, the email/payment notifications were not being forwarded to me. I was under the impression (from earlier conversations) that the payment was up to date. Sadly, I am not a computer whiz. I have personally tried to 'catch up' the payment but was informed that the VCC was so far behind (it was only $10!!!) that the company would not renew our account and this blog would expire by October 15th, 2012.

Events and new information will continue to be posted on Facebook under "Historic Venersborg Schoolhouse".  However, not everyone is on Facebook and the VCC/VHPS will soon lose a valuable communication tool.

Please, if you know how to keep our website name and are willing to do the set-up, the Venersborg Community Club will gladly maintain the account. All communications should go to the club's email address at
