  • User group for smart phones and mobile devices — a chance to get hands-on help and instructions for users of mobile devices of all levels of experience

Social Extras

  • Quest Travels — Our Travel Committee arranges many opportunities each year during school breaks for Quest members to take exciting trips together, both within the US and abroad.
  • Quest Museum Tours — On several Fridays each term, docent-led visits are arranged for “under the radar” museums, with an optional lunch together after the tour.
  • Quest Community — Quest Community is a bulletin board that can be used for questions, information, or discussion that may be of general interest to Quest members. For instance a member can ask for recommendations for a service or information on how to get something done or propose attending theater, dance, music and art shows and invite others on the list to join them.
