The Vergers' Guild of the Episcopal Church celebrated the start of the second decade of the twenty-first century with the launch of their brand new web site at www.vergers.org.
According to Scott Smith, Guild Web Master, "This is a significant step forward for the Guild's communication abilities from where we have been in the past. Along with our new V-Happenings e-mail news distribution service, the new site will keep our membership and interested parties up to date about Guild activities in a timely, informative, and fun way." The new site has a new "Guild Shoppe Online Store" that features many products and services from the Guild that were previously unavailable for purchase online.
Guild President Margaret McLarty added, "The new web site brings a fresh face to the Vergers' Guild as we enter the new year. We have added some pretty innovative features to the site like V-Happenings and our new VergerTV video service on YouTube. Also, we have added a 2010 online membership map that shows our growing numbers as our total membership approaches 1,000 members."
In addition, all site content has been updated and re-edited for accuracy to be aligned with the current nature of the Vergers' Guild.
The Guild joins their sister organization The Church of England Guild of Vergers who last fall launched their new site as well at www.cofegv.org.uk.
