With the Hurstville Senior Citizens Centre now open,
monthly meetings have re-commenced
with the next meeting to be held on
Wednesday 25 May at the new time of 1.30pm
Hurstville Seniors Computer Club was established in 1998 to provide retired and semi-retired seniors aged 60 years and over an opportunity to learn how to use computers. The Club has approximately 240 members.
Main meetings are held in the auditorium of the Hurstville Senior Citizens Centre at 1:30pm on the last Wednesday of each month (except December). After a very brief business session, members and visitors are treated to a talk or demonstration on a computer related topic, or on a topic relating to Senior issues.
The club also conducts a special interest group via Zoom for members interested in the technical aspects of computers.
An important feature of this new site is that it is designed to be "responsive" which means that it has a consistent appearance using all popular browsers on devices ranging in size from the smallest smart phone to large smart TVs.
PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
The committee, together with tutors and group leaders, is planning on how best to provide tuition in the various types of communication technology and social media for which members and prospective members are currently seeking our assistance.
While the main focus is still on Microsoft Windows systems and applications, requests are being received for help with applications on Apple and Android smart phones and tablets and using smart TV systems.
Suggestions on how these demands posed by new technology are very welcome.
