Connections Café is open to the public. All are welcome to attend! 9/22/2014, 6-8 p.m. Questions? Contact email@example.com or 530-750-1170.
Looking for friendly, low-cost, ad-free email service? DCN teams with Omsoft to offer secure, private “you”@dcn.org email accounts for $2 per month or $20 per year. No one at DCN or Omsoft is scanning your messages so that we can show you ads (we don’t show ads). Technical advice and services are available here in Davis. Moreover, the $20 you pay helps support the free services DCN offers local nonprofits — the websites, web tools and classes
