New computer available for seniors

Thanks to funding provided by IBM Global Work/Life Fund and AT&T; Family Care Development Fund, we have received a free computer which is available for use for older adults exclusively at the Rochester Senior Center.

This computer is set up in our library/lounge and is available free of charge. This computer is Internet accessible. Free e-mail services are available.

The computer has a user-friendly program entitled "Generations On Line" available at all times to assist even the computer illiterate person to search the Web, search for specific topic information, write e-mail messages, view sites you might enjoy and much more.

The computer is available for use during the center's normal operating hours. It is simple to use. Come in and sit down at the computer, sign the sign-in sheet and get started.

The computer is set up for you to begin by simply clicking the mouse. For example, you can begin to search for a specific topic. If you need some assistance do not worry. Computer volunteers as well as staff members are available to help you if you need assistance.


Please note, if there is someone waiting to use the computer we ask that you limit your time to 20 minutes.

If you'd like a demonstration of how to use the computer and use "Generations On Line" come to our computer open houses at 1 p.m. Wednesday or 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. Thursday. No registration necessary.

Sally Gallagher is executive director of the Rochester Senior Center.
