20171210 - Weekly News

Postby dia » Sat Dec 09, 2017 9:53 am




This is the final edition of the Weekly News. For more than a decade Joan has provided you with timely information and reminders of coming Club events. Claudia joined her as co-editor in 2009. The Weekly News has often been a challenge (especially in the early days before Bob Rathke simplified the process) but it has always been rewarding. We will miss communicating with members on a weekly basis but more changes are being planned to improve communication with members. In the interim, you will still receive invitations to special events. Regularly scheduled events will be continue to be posted on the website CALENDAR . Become familiar with the HHICC website and you will improve your computing skills and won't miss out on anything.

Thank you for inviting us into your email box each Sunday. Joan Knoettner and Claudia Bristow

Message from Jolyn Concerning SIGs


In case you forgot (LOL) We are closing at 4:00 pm on Friday, December 15, 2017, for the Christmas Holidays for two weeks. We will reopen on Tuesday, January 2, 2018. Please note that Jolyn will be available during the holidays to answer questions at resource.center@hhicc.org

First I want to thank Joan Knoettner, Claudia Bristow and Wes Taylor for their many years of service and support to the Hilton Head Island Computer Club. We will miss their input and regular Weekly News items.

As far as Tuesday afternoons, there is NO SIG on Tuesday, December 12th. I will be trying something new in 2018. There appears to be a need for small, focused workshops for our members. I will continue to host a Member Orientation the first Tuesday of each month but this will not just focus on New Members, but any members who need to come in and learn more about what the Resource Center has to offer. Some of the topics I would like to offer under the "workshop" umbrella are Android Phone Workshop & Android Tablet Workshop together or separately); Google Photos Workshop, Windows 10 Startup Menu & Tiles Workshop, Gmail Setup Workshop. Word 2016 Hands-on Workshop; Photoshop Elements Workshop. These will not be "classes" but will allow our members to either use our workstations at the Resource Center or to bring their own laptops in and work and learn on. Please let me know if you have any ideas of workshops you might like or topics that would be helpful to you. These Workshops will take place each Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 pm in the Resource Center. Hope I can help make 2018 a great learning year... resource.center@hhicc.org

The Resource Center will be closed from Monday, Dec 18th through Monday, Jan 1st.
