Claremont Seniors Computer Club
Bulletin March 26, 2017

Greetings Computer Club Members:
I hope you have enjoyed the much needed rain, especially from the inside looking out. I have a lot of information to send to you so this will be a lengthy Bulletin. First of all I have a new address to send you. The new URL for APCUG is Please use the new address when you access this site.
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.

If the weather is good, Don Brown will be in the classroom to help anyone who needs help with his tips.

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!

Site of the Week by Caroline Corser

Caroline may be out of commission for a few weeks due to the fact that she had a slight accident while walking to her car from the Padua Room on March 14.

She is home and doing well, fortunately she only broke a wrist, It could have been much worse, The latest from her Son Michael passes along the thoughts the family has about how lucky that she has friends at the Computer Club who helped take care of her. She hasn’t lost her sense of humor, and would appreciate phone calls and e-mails. We will give this information at the meeting on Tuesday.
