The June General Meeting was a big success, thanks to Rick Van Akin’s great presentation about the computer challenges faced by small business. Thank you, Bert, for introducing the speaker and for all your hard work, making preparations and arrangements for the event. Also to Richard Corzo who brought drinks and to Bert’s wife for supplying brownies and other delicious snacks.
The next big event on the DACS calendar will be the July 5th General Meeting, when John O’Donnell will talk to us about genealogy and computers. Please read my preview article in this edition for more details.
We are still looking for a Program Chairman. We need someone with organizational skills to schedule topics for DACS general meetings. If any of you feel this would be a fit for your interests, please contact me or any board member.
Several new members have recently joined DACS: Elaine Donnelly (returning), Brigid Guertin, and Rick Van Akin! A warm welcome to them all!
What should be the goals of DACS for the next 25 years? Let’s try to get more new younger members, and start new workgroups! The Board of Directors is eager to hear other ideas. Please talk to me or to any Board member.
Last month I mentioned the Web Design workshop. Another benefit of DACS membership is the Linux workshop, led by Dave Mawdsley. This group helps users install and maintain the Linux operating system, and applications for Linux. More information about Linux can be found on Dave’s website at http://www.madmod.com. Workshops are regular events at the DACS Resource Center, in the lower level of 198 Main Street, Danbury.
We can all be thankful that we have the ability to use computers in our work and for personal communications. The world would be a very different place without them.
