The Computers for Schools program celebrated its 10th anniversary in New Brunswick with an open house Nov. 21 at the provincial headquarters in Fredericton. The event also included the ribbon-cutting for the official opening of the new headquarters and the presentation of certificates of appreciation to donors and volunteers who have supplied and restored more than 26,000 computers for the public school system since the federal-provincial program began.
