March 2024 News

  • Post category:News


Another month of 2024 behind us and now we’re into Autumn, the years keep flying by.

We welcomed two new members who have volunteered their services to be tutors – Ossie Richards and Neil McNaughton. It’s good to have you both join us and I look forward to having you helping our members learn about technology.

I also welcome Jim Bridges, Cecille Coan, Bernie Hayes, Ann Jones, John Manning, Shelley Parsons, and Mansel Williams who joined as new members during February.

Another person I welcome is Alex McOnie as a tutor (shock/horror) he’s too young to join as a member! Notwithstanding that, Alex has proven himself as a valuable volunteer tutor. A point to note – Alex has his own business – Agewise. There is no financial arrangement between Alex and Computerpals. As an independent, Alex offers his expertise for in-home assistance to those who need it at competitive commercial rates. If you need his help you should approach him on Mondays at Club Lambton to discuss.
