KEGS newsletter

Volume 26, Issue 12

Welcome to December, snow, festive lights, and Christmas!  I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Holiday Season this year.

When inclement weather (such as snow/ice) causes the Bellevue School District to close, the North Bellevue Community Center closes for events/meetings and only serves as a warming center.  If we have snow or ice on Tuesday, December 6th, please check to see if the Bellevue School District has closed.  If that happens, we will only meet via Zoom instead of having our usual hybrid meeting.

On December 6th our General Meeting program will be "Encryption Software" presented by Mark Schulman. Losing a laptop or flash drive might mean you're out of money, but it doesn't have to mean that your private data leaks into the world.  Learn how to use encryption software to protect your private data on a computer, external hard drive, or USB flash drive. Please join us for this informative program.

The Tech Corner, General Meeting, and Linux SIG are all now hybrid meetings with growing attendance. The Digital Imaging SIG has opted to continue with Zoom meetings only.  Be sure to check the KEGS Calendar for updated information about our meetings.

It is Early Bird time again.  Please download the KEGS dues renewal form from our website ( and send with your check to the PO Box listed.  Thanks for your early renewal.

We always need more members, so please let others know about the informative meetings we have monthly and all of the free help we offer.  Please check the KEGS Calendar for dates and times of meetings.  We welcome visitors!

To keep up with technology visit to learn about their Monday morning meetings (9:00 AM PT), their Newsletter, and their Facebook page.

Plan to attend an APCUG Wednesday Workshop or Saturday Safari via Zoom.  Because KEGS is a member of APCUG, all KEGS members are able to attend free and are notified via email about these events.

I look forward to seeing you at our meetings soon.
