Receiving a ceremonial oversized check is WPCUG president Pierre Darmon (right). Volunteers refurbish computers that are donated to disadvantaged recipients as part of WPCUG’s Westchester PC-Renew (wpcug.org/pcrenew) initiative, which rebuilds donated computers that are then presented to educational, veterans, and non-profit groups.

The Fraternity of Emile, established 125 years ago, is based in New York City and takes its name from a student in classic Rousseau 18th-century literature.
