March SMUG Meeting at the Murphys Library


             Getting the most out of your Apple computer will be the main topic when SMUG (Sierra Macintosh User Group) holds its monthly meeting, Tuesday, March 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the community room of the Murphys Library, 480 Park Lane, adjacent to Murphys Park.

            “Our Macs have so many capabilities that we don’t always take advantage of,” says SMUG guru Denise Summerset who will be making the presentation.  “We will review several of the shortcuts that can be used to improve our computer experience.”                 As is always the case, there will be time to respond to any questions members bring to the meeting.

            Because of iffy weather conditions in higher elevations, SMUG moves its meeting site from its regular Arnold location to Murphys for the winter months.  Even with this precaution, weather has caused this to be the first meeting of the year.

            SMUG meetings are designed for dues paying members but anyone is welcome to attend to see if they would like to join the group.  SMUG was founded in 1995 and is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. It usually meets the second Tuesday of the month.  Annual dues are $20 for an individual or couple payable at the first of the year. 

            The organization exists to keep Apple users abreast of the latest developments and to address the nagging questions that arise from time to time.  Its goal is to take the mystery out of computers and to enable members to take advantage of all the features their Mac products possess.
