In our thoughts / Nice to know
Recently, I had a conversation with a board member who thought it would be a good idea to designate a place on our website where community news could be displayed. Because most of the "good" news (for example, the recent births in our community) and occasional "bad" news (like Jack Shanfield's passing) makes it to the "Front Page", we needed to find somewhere to place snippets that would linger for a while, without distracting from the ongoing front page articles related to our Judaism.
As a result of that conversation, I've introduced "In our thoughts" and "Nice to know" sections, appearing on the right side of the screen. Our goal will be to post short, one or two sentence summaries of occasions or events related to our congregants. These snippets will typically be displayed for a week or two before they eventually disappear from view.
Please let me know what you think of this idea, and whether you know of any way it could be improved.
