News Release for the Week of February 5, 2018



If you enjoy singing, please consider joining the Goldtones, our Senior Center Chorus.  There are no “auditions”.  Just come over and join the group.  The Goldtones meet on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  We would love to see some new faces and add more voices to our enthusiastic group of vocalists.


PROGRAM UPDATE Due a scheduling conflict The Applesauce Series iPad classes has a time change.  Please note that new time will be 1:00 to 3:00 pm.  Please register at the front desk.


Battle of the Sexes” is our featured movie this month on February 15 at 4 pm.  The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) became the most watched televised sports event of all time.  Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.  Tickets are $2 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. 


Join us for our new session “Make Yourself Smarter in 90 Minutes” held on Tuesdays from 10:30 am – 12 noon.  The topic for February 13 will be discussions and demonstrations of the Google website with over 22 powerful applications including you Tube videos, Images, Google maps, Google shopping, Google books, Google finance and more. Also review and demonstrate Facebook, including posting images and photos and text of various types.  See how to set up Facebook with various privacy options along with reposting information.  On February 27 join us to learn how to avoid getting cheated and getting unnecessary auto repairs.  Recommendations of do’s and don’ts for both men and women.  How women can avoid being discriminated against.  Also new internet applications for comparison shopping of all types of products, online purchases and buying directly from local stores.  Save lots of money and reduce shopping time.  No registration required, just stop in.
