Computer classes 

Becky Herman is teaching the computer classes in April.

The intermediate class started earlier this week. There will be a two-hour class each Tuesday, at 10 a.m. The format for this class is determined by the participants’ needs. A list of topics for discussion was created at the first meeting; subsequent classes are planned to cover the suggested topics.

The beginning class will begin today, Thursday, April 4, at 1 p.m. It will cover some of the same topics as were covered in the previous class, but in more depth. For example, the e-mail class will focus on features such as signatures and vacation responders, changing the look of an e-mail account, configuring two or more e-mail accounts to funnel into one, attachments and adding a picture to an account. This two-hour class is also held once a week.

Call Becky (264-2171 or 903-0788) to reserve a space in either (or both) classes.
