Due to COVID-19 restrictions mandated by the Recreation Department of The Villages, there will be no in-person meetings at the Recreation Centers this Fall. We are pleased, however to be able to host virtual meetings in October and November at the usual 9:00 AM time on the third Saturday of the month.
Our speakers have graciously agreed to make their presentations using Zoom. If you have not used Zoom yet, it is really easy. No camera or microphone is required. Simply click on the link we will provide, and you will be “joining” the meeting from your computer or phone. You will see the speaker’s presentation and hear their talk. There will be a provision for Q&A about the talks, as well as asking general questions.
The Villages Apple User Group links to a nice 6-minute YouTube video introduction to Zoom.
Depending on circumstances, we may be able to resume in-person meetings in the new year.
