Your support will be especially appreciated in 2021 because our club lost an important source of revenue to COVID this year – income from our classes.

Insofar as possible, we've continued to offer classes via Zoom – but doing so without charge. We've also increased our services to members through the introduction of two new monthly activities – the PC Forum and the Apple Forum. In addition, we've used Zoom to continue holding monthly General Meetings, while increasing our Short Film Showcase offerings from quarterly to monthly. 
 
Also, during the pandemic, we've increased our service to the community by creating two new series' for Village Television – “Beyond the Gates,” which takes viewers to nearby places of interest every month, and “Video Club Spotlight,” which presents monthly collections of short videos by club members. See this new website post about our TV offerings.
