We’re back on August 1st! …Virtually!

After the too-long hiatus created by Covid-19 and the need to cancel our large in-person meetings, we’ve decided to go virtual… and we have an exciting presentation scheduled for our August meeting!

Please plan to join us from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 1st for our first Zoom meeting. If you haven’t used Zoom, don’t be intimidated by the thought of a virtual meeting. Zoom is easy to use and there are plenty of tutorials available online. You can even Google something like “Zoom for Beginners” or “Zoom for Dummies” if you want to keep the instructions short and simple…. and if you don’t have a camera on your computer, you can also participate by just calling in on your phone!”

…so please save the date and watch for details to be posted soon!
