COMPUTER CLASSES AT BERKELEY SENIOR CENTER
BEGIN AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER
A MESSAGE TO SENIORS:
Have you ever wondered when you go into a store to buy an item, if the
price asked is a reasonable one? Whether you are shopping for tools,
clothes, yard gear or whatever, you can get a comparison price before you
go shopping by logging on to the Internet. Even if you don’t buy on the
Internet you get the opportunity to see what your item is selling for.
Online you will probably have to pay additional for shipping and you may
find that it is cheaper to shop locally. Your item may not be available
locally, and then you can purchase it online. And it’s easy. All you have to
know are a few basic computer skills.
This brings me to the purpose of this document. Anybody, including
seniors, can learn to use the computer. Even if you don’t shop online, the
computer is an amazing source of information on every subject that you
can think of. At your beck and call you have a dictionary, thesaurus,
encyclopedia, do it yourself manuals, sports info, hobbies etc.
I haven’t mentioned playing games or corresponding via email. The reader
probably is already familiar with these uses of the computer,plus
downloading pictures from your digital camera and printing them on your
own printer whenever you want them.
Computers are part of our daily lives, from the self-checkout counter at
the grocery to the gas pump and voting machine. We can’t get away from
computers. As the old saying goes, if you can’t fight them, join them.
Computer classes at the Berkeley Senior Center are reasonably priced.
They are geared from the very beginner, to those more advanced such as
word processing, spread sheets and photo manipulation. They even offer a
short course on the Internet and a class on keeping your computer in good
Many seniors have already taken courses on the computer offered at
Berkeley Senior Center. Many of them have felt that the learning was very
worthwhile. You don’t have to be a whiz kid to learn computers and there
is a lot of individual instruction available in our classes at the Center
If I have convinced you to learn more about computers, sign up at the
Center. Classes begin again in September. Perhaps I’ll see you there.

your support for this important service. We are inviting you to become a “Senior Center Lunch Partner”. As
a “Senior Center Lunch Partner” you will help provide financial assistance to subsidize the costs.
