Apple User Group Bulletin - September 20, 2021

The pandemic brought a halt to many activities, but the members and officers of the Saginaw Michigan Users Group (SMUG) and Mac-in-Awe MUG (MIAMUG) groups are keeping their MacCamp tradition alive via Zoom. True, attendees will miss the beautiful scenery and face-to-face hands-on fun of past years, but members and guests will still join together to create an energy-rich atmosphere for fun, learning and sharing. The groups each have over 34 years of community, sharing and fun. Better yet, both groups still have original members on their rosters. Congrats to the volunteers who ensure that each MacCamp is one to remember.

Congrats, too, to the groups that have managed to survive and thrive over the past year.
