Your Questions Answered … and A Rummage Sale


At this meeting we are bringing back an old tradition of open Q and A on any topic … PC’s, Macs, Android phones/tablets, iPhone/iPad, home theater, networking, safe computing, favorite software, must-have apps, what computer to buy, how to fix a something that’s not working, and much more.


This is for people with questions and for people with answers to get together. Even people coming in without questions will probably think of some when this get rolling, and you can learn from others’ questions.


We’re also having a rummage sale before the meeting and afterwards … so bring anything (not junk) you can’t use/want to sell, and see if you can find someone to strike a deal. If you are bringing something, come to the church’s foyer about 7pm and we’ll get you a table to use. We’re not a recycler, so you must take back home anything you don’t sell.
