Knights and Dames:

We have some disappointing news. Last October, SMOTJ was notified by the GroupAhead company that they are closing their doors after operating as a company since 2013. Our association with them has been since 2017 as we began the 900th Celebration. The “Message” function within the app has not functioned since the announcement by GroupAhead which is one of the primary reasons driving their decision.

Replacement applications are being investigated and one very promising choice is close to selection. It is our hope that SMOTJ will not miss a beat in offering members the opportunity to network via your smartphone/tablet.

We are looking to provide the same functions (announcements, messages, schedules & meetings, sharing of photos), just on another platform. Depending on the choice, there may be more that can be offered (subgroups). What we know now is that the old platform will wipe all client data on 1 May 2020. Preparations on our part include capturing SMOTJ data to be uploaded to the new platform.

Let me know of any questions or thoughts you have. Email Kathy Watson.
