Now is the time for anyone interested in purchasing a computer, tablet or laptop to attend our general meetings. The large attendance at February’s meeting demonstrated our hunger to learn more concerning this topic. Our next couple of meetings will be dealing with this plus safety and dangers in computing.

Most of our guest speakers deal with both PC’s and Apple computers in their professional life, so their topics can be applicable to both. With that stated, our club welcomes Apple computers. There is room for both, and we hope you will attend and see if you fit!

Bill Evans of PcHelpForce.org. brought us valuable information regarding the above subject matter.

Bill was one of our first speakers to help trash uncertainties about this undertaking. We do know that not knowing what to do with a sick computer (fix or replace) that we’ve become dependent upon brings anxieties. He helped eliminate some of these self doubts.

Bill stayed longer, answering questions and sharing his knowledge and information. We appreciate the time he shared with us. It is people like Bill Evans who help us grow in an area that is changing faster than we seem to be able to learn.
