(6/28/11) NEW FRONTIER SERVICES MAKES AN IMPACT FOLEY RESIDENTS WITH NEW AREA WEBSITE
New Frontier Services, a website and website application provider, located in Foley, is bringing the Foley community together through the development of the What’s Up in Foley website www.whatsupinfoley.com
Last fall New Frontier Services www.newfrontierservices.com received $3,900 in funding from the Living Connected in Benton County Steering Committee www.bentoncountyconnected.org to help in the development of the What’s Up in Foley website.
The goal of the website is to increase exposure of the community’s events, information and opportunities. “We are working with nonprofit organizations to promote community involvement and create community awareness, said Brian Lorenz, owner of New Frontier Services. Lorenz goes on to say, “nonprofits are able to take advantage of the What’s Up in Foley website features at no charge. Those features include a directory listing, details page with specifics on the nonprofit organization, map to the organization’s address, event listings, ability to post information about volunteer opportunities and more.”
The website contains resources, services and opportunities for families, young people, elderly, businesses, nonprofit organizations, visitors to Foley and the agricultural community and job seekers. New Frontier Services is currently focusing on the following areas of the What’s Up in Foley website:
• Youth – providing information about activities and school news as well as links to videos
• Agriculture – this area will not only provide common information but have tools available that will allow farmers to conduct business such as buying and selling of equipment. It will also provide information on training programs offered by the State of Minnesota and links to sign up for those trainings
