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.
