Last time we posted a "help wanted" notice in the Videogram, we were amazingly successful. We recruited professional web designer and Village resident Connie Shaw to be our new webmaster. Maybe our lucky streak will hold!
Tuesday Lab Supervisor Needed! Lillian Winkler has stepped down as our Tuesday Video Lab Supervisor. Thanks for your service, Lillian! We need a replacement to fill this rewarding slot, working with with longtime Tuesday Supervisor and club Treasurer Bob Kulpa. You would be committing Tuesday afternoons (1-4 pm), helping club members and other residents with their video-related projects. You should be comfortable with tech stuff -- but training and printed instructions are available for using all of our equipment.
We're also looking for a volunteer with good computer skills to work with Bob Kulpa maintaining our Lab PCs. No specific time commitments here -- but everyone who uses these computers will be grateful for your efforts. BTW, we just bought three new PCs, thanks to GRF!
A big THANK YOU also to Chuck Hale, who is stepping down from managing our Lab PCs! Chuck's our YouTube Channel Administrator and a longtime Video Club member and instructor.
If you'd like to learn more about either of these volunteer positions, please contact Friday Supervisor Wolfgang Kutter, firstname.lastname@example.org, 949-457-1259.
