    Hi Laurie,

    Glad to hear that you were able to sign up for classes. (Note that I’ve also removed your address and phone number from your comment, as this is a publicly viewable website.)

    For anyone else who would like to sign up for computer classes, this MUST be done by phone. Please call 616-784-2007 to register.
