A Return Visit to Catholic Charities Seniors’ Mobile Meeting

 A Return Visit to Catholic Charities Seniors’ Mobile Meeting

In my capacity and role as the Contributing and Main Editor for much of the social platform content for the Dundee Public Library. On Thursday afternoon, I took it upon myself to visit the local Community Center where Catholic Charities Mobile Seniors’ Service held their weekly meetings for Seniors within our community . The coordinator for the event , Marie Rich whom I’ve come to know well in a very short time was gracious enough me along to attend their meeting.

At this morning’s (Thursday) event there was a guest presenter who was an insurance salesman for one of the state’s top health insurance providers. He had the opportunity to educate the Seniors on some of their most basic needs when it came to health insurance as well as helping them to navigate to the obstacles posed by federal government’s benefits. I have to say that I was very impressed with how easy he made for the Seniors to understand without getting into the legal jargon often associated with this issue. From a personal standpoint, I could see that my uncle , Headley Gordon was relieved by this all.

Renewal of Program …. Computer Classes at the Dundee Public Library

The Dundee Public Library will be looking to renew a program once again, with the start of basic Computer Classes being held at the Library. The goal of this objective will be to teach any interested patrons in learning the basics behind the use of a laptop , desktop computer as well as handheld devices such as a smart-phone or tablet . Also as part of these classes we would be looking to educate the participants in the safety protocols of using these devices , because of the ever-growing threat of cyber-crime and the threat posed by fraud if your personal information falls into the wrong hands, hackers who troll the internet with the view of causing immeasurable harm to their victims.

If you are interested in signing up for these classes then simply inform a staff member of the Dundee Library of your intent and you will be registered for the class . In anticipation of the numbers we would then set a date for the class to commence with the possibility of holding one if not two classes a week , with a duration of not more than one hour per lesson. Classes would be taught by resident library volunteer Alan Parkins and would be free of charge.
