Held on Saturday, Jan. 22, the eighth annual Computer Fix-It-Free Day was a great success: 13 local technicians helped to repair over 14 computers for individuals who might otherwise be unable to afford to get their computers up and running.
Thanks to Lois Lee for coordinating the event.
Thanks also to the Humane Society for donating computer parts, donuts, fruit, hot coffee and juice. Mike Stoll and Debbie Smith went the extra mile to make all this possible.
Kim VanWarmer of downtown Subway very generously donated subs to feed all of our hungry technicians.
The Ross Aragon Community Center donated the conference room in which the event was held — thanks to Cristin Robertson, Laurie Echavarria and Michelle Jamison for their help.
Linda Stuckwish and Jamie Blechman with the Colorado Workforce Center/The Training Advantage for handling eligibility and scheduling.
And a special thank you to the technicians who selflessly gave their time and talents to fix the computers of those in need: Allan Bunch, Natalie Carpenter, Cullen Dalton, Larry Dick, Don Ford, James Kolkau, Thea Lanier, Stanley Quaranta, Kurt Raymond, Frank Simbeck, Stephen Taylor, Bob Walan and Peter Welch.
Changes are in store for the rest of 2011 and the next annual event in January 2012.
