July 30, 2016: Clubhouse Saturday in Silver Spring!

Located in the center of Silver Spring, with public parking across the street and lots of restaurants just a casual stroll away, it is the perfect location for a little Mac troubleshooting, a little iPhone tutoring, and a little iPad show-and-tell.
