December has been a busy month for BenitoLink. After 12 months of fundraising, developing, and planning we launched on Friday, December 7, 2012! We want to thank everyone who helped us start this exciting new venture, including our partner/ sponsors: the Community Foundation, Paicines Ranch, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation & Earthbound Farm. A small group of dedicated volunteers has worked on our launch: Bob Reid, Leslie David, Kathy Bisbee, Julie Morris, Mark Paxton, Paul Levy, Lois Loci and Ron Woldyk. In our first month, we've had more than 30 users register, and some have even donated to help support our operations. We are still in BETA phase and working out the natural "wrinkles" that come with a new project, but we see great promise in 2013 and beyond and we look forward to becoming San Benito County's homepage. Please feel free to help us test drive by exploring the site, sending us your story ideas, photos, and videos and giving us feedback via the orange Feedback button. BenitoLink will be what the residents of San Benito County make it. It's all about Connecting Us … Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays and we hope you'll log on in 2013.
