Drive-by Pickup for School Supplies & Luis Guel’s Traditional Tacos

Sat 7/24 11 am – 1 pm PST

TACOS

Need your fix of Luis Guel’s traditional tacos this summer?  No cost for drive-thru pick-up of prepared tacos, pre-packaged by the dozen for you to take and make at home.  Reserve your tacos by Wed 7/21 by Facebook Messenger to Carmen Guel or email: CarmenGuel@aol.com.  PLEASE pre-order and reserve your tacos as they’ll be made to fill requested orders only.  Drive on by (safety first – masks on if you’re not vaccinated!) Luis Guel’s house at 719 Lakefair Drive, Sunnyvale, CA 94089. Enjoy and take a toast together on Sunday 7/2 during our virtual online meetup! (Note: no cost, just love and tradition)  Can’t make it?  Try your own family recipe and bring your own tacos to the meetup instead!

BACKPACKS & SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Funds raised by the family every year help us purchase school supplies and backpacks for students from kindergarten through 12th grade.  Click here to RSVP for your kids’ backpacks for the 2021-22 school year and pick them up on 7/24 from 11am-1pm at the same location. For more info, contact Cecilia Mason.

5 Important Zoom Meetup FAQs

  • Q1: Do participants need a Zoom account to join?

    A: No. Just click the link when at the scheduled meetup time. Anyone can join a meeting using the free Zoom mobile apps or desktop applications for Windows and Mac. This means we can hold meetups without people having to create an account. If you are on a desktop computer, it may ask you to quickly download the application, but it’s easy, fast, and free.

 

  • Q2: Can I use Zoom on a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet?

    A: Yes. There are official free apps available for iOS and Android that make the experience more enjoyable, but they are not required to participate (a web browser on a desktop or mobile device also works). Once you’re in, click the prompt to “call using internet audio” and the icon that says “start video” so we can see your beautiful smile!

 

  • Q3: Can I screenshot or take pics of the screen during parts of the meetup?

    A: Absolutely! Fun, fun, fun!

 

  • Q4: How can I get the best audio/sound experience?

    A: Whenever possible, mute your microphone. We also recommend wearing headphones to eliminate feedback issues. If your speakers are too loud, we will all hear an echo and that sucks.

 

  • Q5: My screen keeps toggling between people and I can’t see everyone in the meetup 😕

    A: Click the screen once to make your icons appear on your screen and change your screen from individual speaker view to a grid view to see everyone at once. If there are many of us at once, you may swipe right to see more people on the call, depending on your device.
