CMUG WAS DISSOLVED ON DECEMBER 31, 2018

CMUG was founded in May of 1995 as a tax-exempt, non-profit educational organization, open to all who wanted to learn about their Macintosh computers and iDevices. Unfortunately, 23 years later, we found ourselves in the unenviable position of having to dissolve CMUG on December 31, 2018.

Thanks to All Our Volunteers Who Worked Tirelessly Over the Years. With the dissolution of CMUG, we'd like to honor the volunteers who generously donated their time and energy to make CMUG such an amazing club. Over the years, there was a core group of folks who kept CMUG running. We'd like to acknowledge them here.

CMUG-LIST FORUM AND MAC AND iDEVICE HELP SESSIONS TO CONTINUE

Several members from the CMUG-List Group have volunteered to continue offering combined Macintosh and iDevice HELP sessions on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church, 2540 Norvell Bryant Highway (Highway 486), in Lecanto, FL. Detailed directions can be found on the CMUG Venue page. Individual donations to the Church will be encouraged.

If you'd like to join the CMUG-List Group, please email the Forum Manager. Once you join, reminders and sign-up details for each month will be sent to the CMUG-list members via email blast. See the CMUG-List Google Group Forum page for more details.


Although CMUG was dissolved on December 31st, we will continue with our CMUG-List Google Group Forum. This is your forum to ask questions and exchange information on all things Apple. To join this group, send email to the Forum Manager to have your name added to the CMUG-List Google Group. Send the request from the email account you want to use on the forum. In the subject line, put Join CMUG Google Group. Put your full name in the message.

WORD OF CAUTION
If there are storms threatening, disconnect your computer from your internet connection or phone line, or unplug it entirely. Also, everyone should have a good surge protector, just in case (not the $10 variety you get at the hardware store). They are available through Duke Energy. A good surge protector (Panamax variety) is available online at http://www.panamax.com.
