Six volunteers manned the Club's Open House on Saturday, February 11. We were pleasantly surprised when some 70 people showed up and requested tours of the facilities. Even more rewarding is that eight of them joined up and another 14 left with applications in hand.
Based on these results, we will most likely participate in next year's Open House. If so, we will see if we can get the names, perhaps emails, of the tour folks for an accurate count, and also to see how many are either current or past members.
Afterwards, our volunteers met to compare notes and share experiences.

Last month we reported that the Computer Club has purchased a photocopy machine for the use of our members. You will find it on the table up front by the membership payment box. Make sure the machine is turned on, insert the paper face up, and press the "Start" button. Ask the monitor for assistance, if needed.
The cost of printing or copying are:
First 10 sheets: free
11-25 sheets: 10 cents each
26 sheets or more: 25 cents each
Deposit the money in the Cash Donation container located in front of the printer. Thank you.

In the course of going through the more than 300 RSS feeds, I often run across things that I think might be of interest to other user group members.
The following are some items I found interesting during October 2016.
