Veterans' Memorial Center

Project Reports

  • Installfests — No report.
  • Hands-On Demo — We held a demo at the Davis Food Co-Op this past Saturday, as part of their month-long "Healthy, Wealthy and Wise" series of event. People were there chatting with us almost the entire time; probably around a dozen. It was run by Bill Kendrick, Tim Riley and Brian Lavender, with last-minute help from Alex Mandel.

Other Business

  • News — We received a hand-written letter at our PO Box, informing us of the existence of a non-profit in Maryland that collects used PCs and donates them to people in need. [More details to be posted here in the minutes.]

    • Food
      Thanks to Village Bakery in Davis for giving us a discount on pizza, and to Greg FitzGerald and Bill Kendrick for offsetting the cost of pizza (so that we could buy something tasty and local!).
