North Curry County Macintosh Users-e mail to confirm meeting time

Date: 

Thursday, January 28, 2016 - 4:30pm

North Curry County Macintosh Users

North Curry County Macintosh Users (NCC-Mac) has been serving the needs of our local Macintosh and iOS community since 2009. Each of our monthly meetings has an announced topic, but we always allow plenty of time for questions and general discussion. Anyone is welcome. This is a freebie. We will never ask for money.

We usually meet on the last Thursday of each month, 4:30 PM at the Langlois Library. Occasionally vacation plans and holidays can interfere with our meeting date, time or location. Check our blog <ncc-mac.blogspot.com> for updates or contact Chris Schram <chrischram@gmail.com> to get on our Meeting Announcement list.

For additional content, search for "North Curry County Macintosh Users" at <plus.google.com>. (Trust me, that search is much easier than the real address, which is a mile long.)

Sheep Ranch & Wool Factory Mini Apprenticeship

Have you always wanted to reinvent yourself as a sheep rancher and fiber artist?  Come and let us pull the wool over your eyes.  Spend a day (or two) on a very small working ranch, help with chores in the morning, then enjoy the rest of the day working with fibers in our factory.  I'll feed you, and we have a guest room for the hardy soul that wants more than one day on the farm. Intense, hands-on immersion learning. No fee.

The meetings are held on  the second Thursday of each month @ 3: 30 pm at the library.  New members always welcome. Even if you haven't read the month's book, drop in and see  what a lively group we are. Our selection of books is very eclectic  -ranging from best sellers to the classics, fiction to non fiction.
