Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey

Looking out the window I see bluebirds busy at their nest box, squirrels running around and digging like crazy, large groups of squawking blue jays, and other signs of preparations for winter.

To help you prepare for the upcoming family gatherings, be sure that your mobile device has ample photo storage room!
Our November 21, 6:30 PM Managing Photo Storage and Sharing program will ensure success; details follow on page 2.

We are also busily preparing for our exciting fall and winter programs and projects. Much was accomplished at October’s business meeting, and we need your help to ensure the success of our mission.
