Hello Everyone,

Our speaker tomorrow is Jean Bougeant-Owner of Optimized IT Solutions. Cyber Security.  What to look for in emails and websites so you don’t inadvertently click on the wrong thing and end up with a virus in your computer. Jean will discuss common practices and habits to form. These days there are so many scams and people wanting your information.

Thank you to our speaker last week, Jason Rounds-San Juan Regional Hospital’s new President and CEO.  He began his new role as CEO the first part of May.  It was wonderful learning of his past experiences and how he landed in Farmington.  The community and hospital are grateful to have him join and he graciously answered so many questions at the end of the presentation.

Bring your dollars to buy into the poker game and support our yearly social, too!
