The “Social” is a monthly gathering of computer users who participate in the Computer Activities Program at the Senior Center. We welcome and encourage the attendance of new members. The Social begins with a status report of the Computer Activities Program. Then we open the floor for a question and answer session about all things computer and technology. We occasionally demonstrate new computer gadgets and software or talk about technology making headline news. Feel free to bring a bag lunch and we'll provide the coffee, tea and sweets.
*If you'd like to attend, please RSVP by calling Scott at (908) 788-1359.
