Seniors Computer Club

with Tim Beacham

Do you need to use technology to keep in touch with the world? Technology changing faster than you can keep up? Don’t want to commit to a long term class? If you answered yes to any of these, this club might be just right for you. Our resident computer teacher will attend most sessions, but there will be volunteer and we hope, in time, peer help and support. To keep the price really affordable, we ask you to pay for sessions in advance and use them as you need.
