38.     Passing Along Our Treasures and Stuff
 
Do you need help with a serviceable and soulful plan to pass on your treasured possessions?  Some items that have special meaning for your family may get lost or thrown out because no one knows or values their history.  These may include old letters, family documents, dishes, or mementos that you would like saved.  In this hands-on workshop we will help you decide what is really important and how to pass these items on to family.  We will include some digital techniques.

39.  Creating a Media Presentation
 
Are you thinking of creating a media presentation for a group or family?  Microsoft PowerPoint will cost you $100, and you don’t really need all those features. Google Slides is a free alternative that is easy to use and will let you do all the basics of a PowerPoint presentation.  By the end of this session, you will create a short presentation of your own. This is a hands-on session in a computer lab for those users who have a basic understanding of their computers’ operating system.   Bring your own laptop if you like.  PC or Apple  Limit 20
