Missed A Computer Class?

In the first half of 2012, we featured many different classes and events being held at the Cary Senior Center. Some included basic technology courses for seniors to get caught up in the fast-paced world of computers. In case any of our viewers missed these classes, there is still hope! A Computer Club for seniors 55 and over meets at 1:30 PM on the second Saturday of each month (July 14th, this coming weekend) to discuss various aspects of using a computer, software, and general interest for members. Speakers may be outside guests or members of the club that give presentations on new topics. Topics covered include Windows, Apple/Macintosh and Linux operating systems.

The club meets at the Cary Senior Center, located at 120 Maury O’Dell Place, Cary NC. The phone number is (919) 469-4081, if more information is required.
