Pam Short, Apple Ambassador gave her report. Next month our meeting demonstration will be on Crossover Mac who will supply 2 Free Programs for our raffle table.
Suggestions from the group are very important to help keep our group interesting to all the members. It is also hard for a few to continue to come up with new ideas all the time. Others may be intimidated to offer suggestions. So, Bobbie asked if someone will volunteer to put together a suggestion box. This would be an anonymous way to offer suggestions. If you can use your creativity to make up a suggestion box, please let Bobbie know.
Bobbie talked about the three tables in the back of the room. There is a free table. If things are not taken from that table, she will be getting rid of those that have been there for a long while. There is a table with computer things and another table with odds and ends. These two tables are for our raffle drawing. If you have any suggestions for items that you would like to find on the raffle table, let Bobbie know.
Our next meeting will be April 14 (2 days after Easter).
If you are not getting e-mails from Bobbie let her know.
Pam showed some features of your address book using the search box in e-mail. You can search for any e-mail subject you have e-mailed out previously.

Bill held the regular raffle. The green ticket raffle will be held at the end of the meeting.
Ben Culver explained a feature in the new iPhoto 09 called Faces. You can identify the people in your photos by name. Then, after labeling a few photos with the same names, Faces can find any photo with that same person in it.
