Text Message Notification Service:
We have set up a Twitter account for the Patriots band to send emergency text messages to cell phones of band members. The Patriots website will remain the primary means of communicating information to band members, but text messages will give us a way to communicate last minute notices like a rained out concert or a rehearsal cancelled due to bad weather.
