Computer Booters = no tricks

Kc Coller, Publicity Director

Computer Booters October calendar is in order. So much is happening besides “Trick or Treat.”

At the September general meeting, Kasey Wemyss and some of the Best Buy Geek Squad provided information about buying a new home computer. They also spoke of the several types of service plans they offer their customers that sound worth investigating. Their presentation was packed with knowledge and energy. We “thank” them for their time with us.

First the announcement of Justin Sulhoff of Optiv Security is scheduled to speak on “Secure Online for Seniors.” (That BE us!) It’s so to our advantage to keep abreast of computer dangers so we may safeguard against them. Our learning skills about computers can be expanded by listening to the presentations accessible to us. Our speakers willingly share helpful computer knowledge to the members. Optiv is an advanced, trusted partner for cyber security solutions.

Workshops start October 3. To enroll and secure a spot, call or email Bill Phillip, workshop director, at 480-895-8178 or [email protected].
