President's Message

By Tom Telford                                                                   




Thanks to the Mountain Home Bomb Squad for their presentation at the April meeting.

These are very, very impressive young people and the Board will be asking for membership approval of a donation to this group at the May meeting.

As previously mentioned we are going to attempt to start classes on specific computer functions if the membership has an interest and sufficient ideas are forthcoming from the members. Startup may be delayed until the fall, as we are running up against summer activities which take precedence over indoor sessions. We will run these classes from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm, on meeting days, using member laptops or one of the club units for those who do not have laptops. The same meeting room would be utilized for these classes by closing the divider and using room “B” for classes while tutor sessions are being held in room “A”.

We have started taking member pictures for the “Members Only” section of the website. This section will be password protected and will only be completed with member permissions. 

There are still openings for a tutor session at 11:00 AM on May 2nd. If you are interested in a one on one learning session, please send me an email well in advance of the meeting date. Do take advantage of the Tutor program if you have any question on computer programs and /or operations.

Please be aware of the meeting and help desk items and schedules, which appear in other sections of the newsletter.

The group meeting began at 2:00 PM.


Total attendance was 41 people, including one new member and four guest speakers


President Tom welcomed the members and gave the treasurer’s report.

The tutor session had one participant today. Please contact Tom before the next session to sign up.

We are starting to add member pictures to the website. Officers and tutors will be posted first. Access to this area of the website is password protected. 


Our speakers for today’s meeting were four members of the Mountain Home High School Bomb Squad. Over the 24 years that this First program has existed, they have won numerous awards. With slides, they described the program and the things they did to develop their robot, “Hornet”. After just six weeks to build their robot, they competed around the United States with other First groups and brought home several more awards. They answered the many questions from the membership.


President Tom introduced today’s member, Joanne C., who has rejoined the Club.

Chris Collins will be teaching a Summer class at ASUMH on Internet Security. Time and dates will be determined.


The winner of the monthly drawing for a certificate to the Bookworms Café was Mary C,
