Remember that PLUG now meets on the FIRST MONDAY of each month.

We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring your recently-read Linux magazines to trade with other members. And we have a draw for an e-book of the winner's choice. Members get double the entries.

Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building. From the front, go down the hall to the right, and enter the last door on the left.

After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on MONAGHAN ROAD (just a stone's throw north of Lansdowne). They have free wireless along with their treats and refreshments.

Hope you can make it!
