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 were very successful in improving participants’ skills and confidence.
As a follow-up to the State Grant for Technology, the Center will offer the same 10 workshops again this Fall.
The schedule is:
PC Basics (Sept. 15-17) Day Microsoft Word (Sept. 22-24) Evening
Microsoft Power Point (Sept. 29 - Oct. 1) Evening Microsoft Excel (Oct. 6-8) Day
Print Shop (Oct. 13-15) Day Microsoft Publisher (Oct. 20-22) Evening
Photo Shop (Oct. 27-29) Evening Introduction to iPad (Nov. 3-5) Evening
E-Mail Basics (Nov. 10,12) Day Internet Basics (Nov. 17-19) Day
The Day Workshops are currently scheduled from 1 - 3 pm, and the Evening Workshops are scheduled from 6 - 8 pm. Each Workshop will be a series of 3 sessions held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. 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 is enclosed.
Registration forms are also available at the receptionist’s desk.
The overall goal of our grant project was to enable seniors to gain and maintain skills to actively participate in the computer age. 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/.
You may also call the Center at 215-453-7027 or 215-453-7028.
