Links from the June 28 General Meeting

Thanks to all who attended NEKAAL’s June 28, 2012 General Meeting at the Topeka/Shawnee County Library. I had the honor of presenting a three-part program, and there are a lot of websites you can visit to expand on my all-too-rushed subjects. Rather than watch the attendees trying to scribble in the dark, I thought I would have mercy and tell them the website addresses will be available here.
