3-D Printing Demonstration

Last Friday, we had a special visit from the 3-D Printer.  We learned more about the process of printing things in 3-D and we were even able to see a tiny cat get printed!  One lucky customer even went home with the printed cat as a memento of the experience.

Congratulations, Bill!

Tax season may be over, but it’s not too late to say thank you and congratulations to one of our AARP Free Tax Help volunteers, Bill.  Bill has been helping our community get their taxes done for 20 years.  Thank you for all of your hard work, and we hope you’ll stick around for another 20 years!
