Marian Kile

Marian will be showing us how to use Microsoft (MS) Office products this semester: MS PowerPoint, MS Word and MS Excel. These classes can be useful to the novice as well as the more experienced user. Since it is 45 minutes, no participation is expected. Members are welcome to bring their lunch. The weekly topics will also be in the Recorder newsletter and the weekly email reminders.
