As you know, the forum was recently lost, due to a “drive crash”. The team is working to create a new and improved forum. Additional status information will be announced at the January meeting.


  Why don't you make a point to try our digital library this year. You will be amazed at all the wealth of knowledge that can be found here. If you do not try it, you are missing a great opportunity to learn new techniques and brush up on old ones. Henry has the library “open” at each regular meeting. You can click here to view the library listings.

Please remember that you can now view some of the club DVDs on line. Go to the library listing on our club website and click on the underlined titles.
For a complete list of all items in the Digital Library, see Henry Davis at club meetings, email him at hdavis37@charter.net or call him at 393-3191 and leave a message.
