SVCB Phone Tree Message for March, 2024

General Meeting

Our March Meeting will be held on Saturday, March 16 from 9:30 AM to 1 PM in person at Vista Center San Jose with the zoom option available for those who cannot attend in person. The Zoom information is at the end of this message.


Our program this month will be offered by Debee Armstrong titled "Solving your technology issues when you are not a wizard". You don't have to have geek genes to learn how to troubleshoot tech problems.

We will continue with our getting to know our members series and Lorraine Brown will be sharing with us key points about her experiences.

We also will be holding an auction of high and low tech devices as organized by our Committee Chair of Fundraising, Carol. So bring some funds if interested in participating! Below is a description of the items.
