The October speaker will be Cristen Darcus from Austin Library; her presentation will be Virtual Library - how to get all kinds of data, resources, information, movies, magazines etc. using computers, tablets, or smart phones.

Community Service Project : MIKE’S PLACE
“Mike’s Place” is the name of a program offered through Meals On Wheels. This program provides services to individuals with alzheimer’s disease and dementia. It also serves as a source of support and rest for caregivers. Social time with clients provides each individual an opportunity to learn and laugh. Clients engage in appropriate activities in a warm, safe, and caring environment. The group meets on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Meals on Wheels building located at 3227 E. 5th Street, Austin.
Mike’s Place needs our help in collecting arts/craft supplies for use by their clients. At our
September 16th and October 21st meeting you will see a large box marked with the name “Mike’s Place”. Please donate items (new or partially used) that you may have at home such as scissors, markers, paint and brushes, pens, glue sticks, colored pencils, tissue paper, stickers, stencils, glitter glue, stamps, construction paper, greeting cards, felt, and yarn. They particularly want large markers and smaller sized picture frames (4 x 6). Use this opportunity to clean out your stationary drawer and provide help for a good project.
