Snowbird Notification Help
Riverside Snowbirds have the option of subscribing to e-mail notifications to receive important announcements in a timely manner. Riverside Snowbird Notifications function differently from e-mail lists that you may be familiar with (like Yahoo Groups and Mailman) in that Riverside Snowbird Notifications are one-way only. Subscribers can not post messages or reply to messages. Therefore, subscribers only receive important announcements in their mailbox (so their e-mail in-box in not flooded with messages.) The Snowbirds' website Forum provides users with a place to post messages and share information with other campers. Note: Forum subscriptions are not the same as Snowbird Notifications (see Forum Help for more information.)
You may read the entire article or use the following shortcuts to go directly to the information you need.
