Gathering Each Monday
Coldstream Club House - at 7 PM
The Senior Tech Group brings technology users together to share knowledge and experience. User groups represent the spirit of the frontier, a community getting together to do things that no individual ought to have to do alone. User groups are founded on the principle of “members helping members.” We are particularly interested in helping those who have limited or no experience with computers so they may participate in the rapid transition from traditional means of communications and commerce to the Internet. So please invite your "non-connected" neighbors to come along to a meeting or clinic and see how easily we can help them learn what they need to know.
Note: There will be no clinic nor presentation on July 21st. Both Glenn and Bob will be out of town. Bob will be on site for Clinic on July 28th.
July 14 to Aug 18, 2014, Mondays at 7:00 PM - Clinic - Everyone welcome! We do not have any prerequisites, just come, ask questions, bring your tech issues and enjoy. Glenn and/or Bob will be at the Clubhouse for one-on-one help and group discussion of computer use and other technology issues. We am happy to help with questions you have about any presentation session (programs) or any other tech questions you might have.
Notice for Visitors to the Web Site
As you will see, this is an open web site, with access granted for all Internet users. The Senior Tech Group uses this site as a resource for the three communities we support, i.e., Coldstream Crossing residents and the Phoenixville Library visitors in Pennsylvania and The Groves community in Fort Meyers, Florida. We provide direct support, including house calls, at appropriate times of the year for the Coldstream Crossing and Groves communities. All of the services we provide are pro bono.
We welcome visitors from outside our supported communities, to view the resources in the web site. While we attempt to maintain all the information and links the best we can, we disclaim responsibility for any use or mis-use of any information or links to other sites contained herewithin.
An Important Note: Along with much praise for the STG and what we do at our presentations, there are some of our attendees who say "their eyes get glazed over" at how quickly we move through the different screens and options. WE HEAR YOU! We have kicked this around and are committed to make no demonstration clicks or entries on the computer image on the TV screen without making sure everyone knows what are doing and how/why we are doing it.
Senior Tech Group Members (If you attended at least once, you are a member), please let us know what you would like us to cover in the future.
