Long Beach Computer Club (California) collected food for seniors
at Member Appreciate meeting
The November meeting featured dinner with three turkeys and all the trimmings as
well as a special raffle for those bringing canned goods to the meeting.
This year’s community service project was the collecting of non-perishable food items
for seniors and those less fortunate. For each item donated, one raffle ticket
was issued for either the regular or special raffle which consisted of an inkjet
printer, MAC laptop with OS/X, Aluminum computer case, 4 gig flash drives and a
surprise or two. Thanks to the members, a pick-up truck full of food was donated
to a local agency.
Community Computer Club of La Verne collects toys
The Community Computer Club of La Verne again collected toys for their local
fire department’s toy drive. They beat last year’s toy total and had an

was $1,250 worth of toys and is awesome for their little club. Members who
donated toys (minimum of $10) were given a raffle ticket for the two prizes:
Canon photo printer and Epson all-in-one printer. The food was wonderful, a good
time was had by all and there were wonderful sides brought in by the members.
And almost everyone went home with a bag of fried chicken for dinner.
