A day in the AUG lab

I recently stopped by Apple User Group (AUG) lab to say hello to Vic Dougherty and Margaret Hilarides. Margaret recently joined our monitor staff. New to Sun City Center, she is not new to Florida. An interesting element of her career in research at Eli Lilly was working in the Macintosh office environment in the ‘80s. Margaret is a natural around the computer. If you need help with anything, stop by the lab. The Club also has available for your use a color printer. Time to impress your grandkids with colorful letters from Sun City Center.

The lab is also open Mondays from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Tuesdays 9:00 am – 11:00 am, Wednesdays 9:00 am – 11:00 am, Thursdays 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, and Fridays 9:00 am – 11:00 am.
