The Board is trying to designate some specific times each week where a monitor will be in the club computer lab and willing to help beginners or mentor others. Please remember that other monitors are there to open and close the room and report computer problems, not to mentor (unless they specifically indicate it on the club calendar).
For February and March, the mentor monitor times are Wednesday afternoons, and a few Tuesday mornings. Please always check the club calendar to make sure that a mentor monitor will be in the lab. The mentor monitors are:
Wednesday, Feb. 21 PM – Barbara Evans
Wednesday, Feb 28 PM – Andrea Houston
Wednesday, March 7 PM – Barbara Evans
Wednesday, March 14 PM – Holly Gibson
Tuesday, March 20 AM – Andrea Houston
Wednesday, March 21 PM – Barbara Evans
Tuesday, March 27 AM – Andrea Houston
Wednesday, March 28 PM – Holly Gibson
Debra Dirks was nominated for the position of Treasurer for the Genealogy Club. It is a 2 year term that starts July 2018. There were no additional nominations from the floor. Elections will be held at our March general meeting.
The handout for our speaker tomorrow is a little long because she has included several pictures to help us understand what she is explaining. I am asking you to please print out your own copy and bring it to the meeting. I will make a few copies for those of you who do not have access to a printer. Please let me know if you need one.

In January, dues continued to roll in, $600 worth. This bounty was offset by the usual speaker and Comcast fees and the unusual purchase of one new computer monitor. For details please see Bob’s Treasurer’s Report.
Forgot to pay your dues, or were out of town? Please bring a check for $20/person or $30/couple to our February meeting this coming Tuesday, or leave it in the Treasurer’s drawer in the club rooms. Thanks!
I am sure you have all heard on the news that this year is a particularly bad year for the flu. Using sterile wipes is not good for our computer equipment, but there are 2 bottles of hand sanitizer (one with aloe in it) on the printer table and desk. Please feel free to use it before and after you use the club computers for your research. Let’s all stay healthy!
