‘Ask the Local Expert’ in Weston
Wilder Memorial Library is launching a new series of programs titled ‘Ask the Local Expert.’ Vermonters have earned a reputation for being smart, capable folks who are good at figuring things out independently and sharing knowledge within local communities. Our region is full of talented experts who are eager to help their neighbors solve problems, acquire new skills and learn about Vermont and the wider world. This new series will feature local experts who will offer hands-on training and educational presentations on the topics they know best.
The first class will take place at the Library on Saturday, September 24, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with local expert, Matt Sydorowich of Andover, who will teach Basic Computer Skills for PC Windows users. Sydorowich has decades of experience fixing computers and teaching others how to get the most from technology. He owns the local computer service and repair company, Sydscompufix.
‘Ask the Local Expert’ programs are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Call 802-824-4307 or email email@example.com if you would like to sign up. Future classes include learning to tie your own flies for fly fishing, everything you ever wanted to know about bees and honey, knitting and fiber arts, how to set up Internet through your smart-TV at home, and more.
