Claremont Seniors Computer Club

January 14, 2017

Greetings to all:

We have had 2 meetings this month and the attendance was pitifully low at both meetings. As you know we have lost a lot of members the past few years and if we are going to continue to have weekly meetings we will need everyone who is able, to attend each of our meetings.

The city does not charge us rent so we pass the savings on to our members by not charging any dues, but if the lack of attendance continues we will have to move back to Joslyn for our meetings, which means we will not have the available parking that we enjoy at the Hughes Center along with a few other amenities.

A lot of Computer Clubs have closed up this past year, and we would hate to be among this growing list of Clubs due to lack of attendance and interest.

If at all possible please come to the next meeting which will be of interest to everyone. Our speaker will be Deborah Keasler, R.N. from Pomona Valley Community Hospital and her subject will be High Blood Pressure. Our meetings are held in the Padua Room every Tuesday at the Alexander Hughes Community Center at 1700 Danbury Rd. Claremont, the doors are open at 6:30 pm and refreshments are ready at 7:00 pm with a half hour set aside for social time. Our meetings begin promptly at 7:30 pm.

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 Board Meeting for January was canceled due to the President not being available so we will have a meeting in February, look for the date to be announced. We are still very much in need of someone to take on the position of Program Chairman, even though a lot of this season is already arranged it would be nice to have someone take over this important position.


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.
