What's Coming Up This Week At Our Club:

1pm: Windows 8.1 What you need to know before you get started. HnH, Just Drop In
Windows 8.1 is a very practical program for a variety of computers and you will like it if you overcome the first hurdles. In this class we show you just what you need to get started so you can enjoy your new pc or laptop. Instructor: Brigitte Haag

1 pm: Music Workshop Instructor: Larry Lisle
We will be discussing people in the class and their experiences thru out life involving music. Whether they played, sang, were song writers, support staff or just enjoyed listening, we'd like them to share their stories. I'd also like to bring in local musicians (working or retired) to hear their stories or possibly hear and see a short demonstration of their talents. With 800 plus members in our club, many have musical talents that they might share with us. Music, of course, is the universal language, and I feel the possibilities are endless. I'm certain also that the people in the class will share ideas also as to the direction we might go with the workshop.  Discovering new web sites that play music of all types will certainly be a primary goal. A small session among our own members might even be possible. At any rate it will certainly be a fun learning experience for us all
