> Following the death of former OCLUG founding member Randal Leavitt, it was proposed with
> some enthusiasm that OCLUG consider how to do something in his memory. At the November
> Board meeting, the Board decided to initiate a series of workshops to be held at public
> venues such as Public Libraries where the use of Linux or FLOSS tools would be presented.
> We hope to arrange a series of these, lasting 2-4 hours, and are suggesting that the first
> of these be an introduction to "GIMP: a free alternative to PhotoShop".
> Sue Galvin, Randal's widow, has given her enthusiastic approval. Our tentative name for
> these sessions is the Randal Leavitt Free/Libre Software Workshops.
> If interested in helping out, please contact a member of the board, either in person at a
> monthly meeting or via info at oclug.on.ca.
> Linux mailing list
> Linux at lists.oclug.on.ca
