Pennridge Community Center
Comfortable with Computers?
Through a 2014 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Center had offered ten workshops which were geared to help you to become more comfortable with computers and iPads. Workshops taught by Ted Heimbach and Dale Roades provided activities to improve your skills with the basic programs as well as special software. The ten workshops held this past Spring and Fall were very successful in improving participants’ skills and confidence.
As a continuation, the Center will offer the same 10 workshops in the Spring of 2016.
The classes offered are:
PC Basics Microsoft Word
Microsoft Power Point Microsoft Excel
Print Shop Microsoft Publisher
Photo Shop Introduction to iPad
E-Mail Basics Internet Basics
The workshops are typically held over three days, 2 hours each day. There may be evening workshops dependent upon demand Class size is limited to 8 students. The cost per Workshop is $75 per person, $65 if you are over 55 years, or $55 if you are a Center member. More detailed information will be available in February/March 2016.
We want to continue this effort, so please consider participating in future workshops to become more comfortable with the software your grandchildren use daily!

The Center will be closed for National Holidays.
Also, the Center will be closed due to inclement weather coinciding with the closing of the Pennridge area schools (#757 on some radio stations). If you are unsure of the closure,
WNPV (1440 AM) and WFMZ-TV69 (Allentown) will announce the school closing by name.
If the school district opens late the Center will be open, but use common sense.
CBS3 carries school closings online at http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/schools/.
