as the Monday meeting this week was the day before ANZAC Day our new president Fay bought in some family memorabilia and put on a display in honour of ANZAC Day. She has compiled an extensive family history which gives an interesting insight into early life in Coffs Harbour.

Short Courses:

One issue the new committee and all tutors are currently debating is running a bunch of short workshops and courses that will go for one or two days. There will be a schedule published so you know what will be coming up in the next few weeks and you will be encouraged to book a spot on each course.

The first one planned is Password management. Bruce Pollack will be running this and we are hoping to run it in the next couple of weeks.

Other Topics on our list are:

  • Social Media Facebook Snapchat etc. and how to ensure your privacy
  • How to send photos to friends via Email, SMS, Facebook Messenger etc
  • How to use Apple Siri and Google Voice
  • Streaming services Netflix, Stan Foxtel etc.
  • Making conference calls on your mobile phone
  • Using you phone calendar
  • And many more…

For this program to be successful we need as much input as possible from you, the members. Don’t be afraid to ask because you think it’s a dumb question. Sometimes the simplest of things are what baffles us when learning something new.

Stay Tuned . . . . .

That’s all for this week Folks!
