Welcome! This page provides the most recent What’s Up programs presented by RVAS member Frank Baratta at our monthly meetings. These are PowerPoint slide shows, so you’ll need this software or a PowerPoint Viewer to play the slide show.

Left click on the image below to open a program. Each slide show typically includes some slides with animations. To fully view the information on such slides, you’ll need to play the PowerPoint in slide show mode. Once you’ve opened the slide show, just left click with your mouse or touchpad to progress through each slide and the animations on a given slide. Sometimes a single left click will initiate a sequence of animations. So, after left clicking, pause a moment before clicking again. That way, you won’t bypass any animations.

We’re interested in whether you find these What’s Up programs usable and useful. Your comments are welcome. Email them to: Frank Baratta at
