Claremont Seniors Computer Club Bulletin

December 31, 2017


Greetings Computer Club Members

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas holiday or whatever you celebrate.

The first meeting of the New Year will be this coming Tuesday January 2, 2018.

It has been quite awhile since I have sent you a Bulletin, I had hoped to send out a Bulletin a few weeks ago but time just got away from me, so here I am on New Years Eve writing a Bulletin, and wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

The club isn’t the only one that has been neglected my Christmas Cards are still waiting to be stamped and sent out. No excuses, it just takes me longer to do anything, and there is not enough time in a day to do everything that I planned on.
Remember this is where you will find everything of importance concerning our Club activities.  The upcoming program schedules for our meetings are also listed, as well as the Class schedules, so you know what is coming and when. Ed O’Donnell, our Web Master does a wonderful job of putting all of the information together and keeps several months active as space permits. Please check our Website often.

Computer Lab
Music and Slide Transfer areas
Joslyn Senior Center Annex 660 N. Mountain Ave Claremont Ca 91711

The Lab and classroom is open every Friday from 1 to 4:00 pm. The Techs hope to be able to solve your Computer related problems. Our Lab is located in the first door on the right as you enter from Mountain Ave. The Music and Slide Transfer areas are located in the front of our classroom. This can all be found in the Annex of the Joslyn Senior Center 660 N. Mountain Ave. Claremont. If you are in need of some tutoring you will find tutors available in the classroom

The techs welcome all of the challenges you bring along with whatever goodies you wish to share. Plan to stay with your Computer as they may need your input. You may want to check out some of the refurbished items they offer for a small donation. The techs are all volunteers from our club; and they endeavor to help with relatively minor problems. We are not in competition with commercial repair facilities. We will not hesitate to refer you to the professionals for major problems.

Everyone is welcome to the workshop, but Claremont Senior Computer Club members always have priority. Please be sure to sign in with one of our friendly greeters who serve to direct you for service. They will also show you around our facility and encourage you to join our club if you are not already a member. Remember, membership is free, and you are invited to attend our weekly meetings. We also have classes to improve your computer skills. So bring your problems and challenges to the gurus on Friday afternoons from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. You will enjoy the friendliness, enthusiasm and camaraderie……..and you may even get your problem solved!

Our next Board meeting will be on Tuesday January 9 2018 at 6:00 pm in the Padua Room. Our Board meetings are always open to our members.

We are still looking for a volunteer to be our program chairman this is a position that is relatively easy to fulfill most of the contacting can be accomplished in one or two days. The 3rd Tuesday of each month is set aside for Marcie Lerner from Inter Valley who always brings us someone interesting from the community.

We are also looking for a Treasurer if you are interested please let one of the officers know.

Every week we have an opportunity drawing which can be found at the front Left side of the Padua room, near the refreshments.
If you bring a guest to a weekly meeting and register them at the sign in table, you are eligible for a free ticket. Remember you can’t win if you don’t play.
