During the pandemic, we have been using our computers more often and in ways we likely never have before. Like keeping in touch with friends and family using Zoom, Messaging, Facetime, etc. But sadly, the OakMUG board was locked down like everyone else and we weren’t able to help. That is finally coming to an end, with the Government and the OVA preparing to relax masking and social distancing requirements and open our Oakmont facilities. Your OakMUG board is anxious to restart our club activities; we look forward to gathering once again to get reacquainted and share our interests in Apple products and related technologies.

For those who may be new to Oakmont or to our user’s group, OakMUG is a team of residents who share an interest in home computing using Apple products: iMacs, Macbooks, iPhones, iPads, MacOS, iOS, and other Apple offerings. We hold regular meetings with interesting topics presented by computer professionals, and provide a forum for exchanging ideas and getting answers to our member’s questions. We will be reaching out to you by e-mail if you were a past OakMUG member. If you’re interested and are not a past member, please drop us an email at .

We are now working on identifying topics and presenters as we plan our meetings for the remainder of the year. There are a few changes from prior years as will be described in a future edition of the Oakmont News and an e-mail sent to or members.

And still a third: exercise.
