The November 8 meeting will be held in NEC room 200.    Dave Palmer will be giving a program on Shopping Safely on the Internet.

There will not be a SNUG meeting in December.  Instead, all are invited to the December 6th Olli  Day party 2 to 4 PM on USF campus. Details forthcoming. 

Billy Swartz introduced our speaker Robert Capellini who presented a program on PICASA –a Google free download with 5GB free storage.   He discussed using Picasa to prepare your photographs for many ways of presentation and demonstrated several of its capabilities.  He will be teaching the Picasa course for OLLI beginning on  Oct. 25 for 4 weeks.  The morning class is filled but if sufficient interest is present, an afternoon class will be given on the same day.  For those wanting to prepare things for the holidays this would allow you to learn to work with Picasa so  you could  prepare things.

  A 50-50 drawing was held which Jim Koehler won. There will be no board meeting after this meeting. There will be a board meeting after the November and February meetings.

Meeting was adjourned at 2:50 PM
