Claremont Seniors Computer Club

Bulletin October 20, 2017


Greetings Computer Club Members:

It was so nice to have so many Computer Club Members stop by our table at the Health Fair Wednesday. We also had a lot of inquiries about our classes and the services offered at our Lab on Fridays. There was also a lot of interest in our meetings.

We have succeeded in filling the Hospitality and the Sign in desk positions, which Welma Fu has taken over for us. Next week it would be really nice if everyone thanks her and also our Hospitality team for volunteering for these positions.

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.

Don’t forget to sign up to bring something for refreshments, as long as there is something for members to snack on or take home, we will not make assignments. A lot of our opportunity winners have graciously turned around and provided refreshments the next week, Thank you for being so generous. You don’t have to bring something that is baked. Members always appreciate something that is homegrown also.

Our next Board meeting will be on Nov 14, at 6:00 pm in the Padua Room. Our Board meetings are always open to our members.

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!
