This will be our December meeting and we will have a general Q & A session for anyone who wants to ask a question about Apple or Mac stuff.
The club will provide pizza, water and soft drinks, and dessert. Beer is also available if you want to purchase it yourself. There is plenty of parking.
Please feel free to bring a guest. The more, the merrier! 
– If you have an ugly Christmas sweater to wear, that’s good, too.
– If you want to bring a wrapped white elephant gift, we could have a little gift exchange.
Let’s eat some pizza and have some fun!
