Health and Taxes

Tuesday, February 23: 6:00-6:30 p.m Q&A / 6:30-8:30 p.m. Regular Meeting

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST, WHITESBORO, NY 13492

It’s that time of year again…the time that some look forward to and others dread. It’s income tax season! Since many of us use different methods to complete our income tax returns we thought it would be interesting to have a round table discussion regarding your favorite methods and why you’ve chosen the method you use.

New Year’s resolutions are often full of promises to make better choices regarding our health in the new year. Apple makes it easy to track a few bits of health data just by carrying their cell phones, but there are other options out there including devices that attach to your wrist from FitBit, Samsung and Motorola (as well as the Apple Watch, of course). We’ll discuss some of the options available, see what’s being used within the group and the different features these devices offer.

We hope to see you there!

Question & Answer

Tuesday, August 25, 2015, 6pm – 8:30pm
Dunham Public Library, 76 Main St., Whitesboro, NY

Whether you’re having trouble with your software or hardware we are here to help you! Although we set aside time at the beginning of each meeting to help you with problems that have been bothering you, this is an excellent opportunity to access the group’s collective knowledge. Did your latest update wreak havoc on your files? Did you know that iOS updates often turn on your Bluetooth option? If you don’t use Bluetooth on your mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad) then you are draining your battery unnecessarily. These are the types of things you can learn by coming and asking questions!

We hope to see you there!
