Tech Clinic starting Wednesday, September 16th at 11am
The Tech Clinic is your chance to come and talk with me about your specific tech issues. For example:
– Is your computer acting different (slow)?
– Do you want to figure something out on that new smart phone you just got?
– Should I buy a tablet or upgrade what I already have?
– How do I stay safe on the internet?
– How do I text someone that picture I just took?
No question is too big or too small. You have questions, and I want to help you get answers, and if I don’t know the answer, we’ll tap into “the web” to figure it out. So stop by any Wednesday between 11:00 and 12:00 and we’ll make your technology BEHAVE!

Buy, Upgrade or Switch? Tuesday, September 29th at 1:00pm

How should I access the internet, and what do I do now that Windows 10 has been released? A quick overview of what to expect from Windows 10 (just released) and how it differs from previous version of the software. We will talk about the trade-offs of keeping what you have, How will you know it’s time to make a change, and what type of device (laptop, all-in-one, tablet)makes the most sense for you? We’ll talk about this and much more. If your just curious or if you’re ready for a change, this is your chance to see windows 10 in action and ask questions, since there will be plenty of time for Q&A and discussion. Please call to register, 508-832-7799.

It is a non-profit organization run by its members. If you are not a FASCA member, we urge you to join us during our membership drive. Dues are $5 per year for Annual Membership or $50 for a Lifetime Membership. FASCA members raise money to assist the Council on Aging by providing large and small necessities for the Senior Center. In the last year alone FASCA has subsidized dinners, installed rolling windows in the dining room serving area, paid for landscaping, runs weekly Bingo, card games, Memorial Fund and numerous trips. The Senior Center would not be able to do all it does without the generous financial help from FASCA. The FASCA Trip Coordinators, Lynne Guittar and Rich Hedin also offer Gift Certificates redeemable towards trips, that make a terrific gift for family or friends who like to travel.
