For many years Ann’s Choice Computer Club has provided technical assistance to residents who needed help with their computers, printers, and other electronic devices. After discussion about club members’ liability in the event of a software or hardware failure, the Computer Club Board, with regret, has voted to discontinue that service. Ann’s Choice has an IT Department that can help you. You can reach them at 800 677 0211. There is a fee for their service.
Apple Support is a free service which can answer your questions and solve your problems. Have your serial number and/or model number available when you call. 800 275 2273
But, if you want help closer to home, complete the survey shown below. Pat and Lois will use the survey results to schedule one-on-one help sessions in either your apartment or the Computer Club room.
COMPUTER BEGINNERS CLASS
ANN’S CHOICE COMPUTER CLUB
If you know a resident who could benefit from using a computer, inform them of the beginners class described here.
The purpose of this class is to provide hands-on training to allow residents unfamiliar with computers to use the computer and print facilities in each of the neighborhoods. The class will be held in the Keystone Computer Lab at established times. Three topics will be covered:
Games (30 min)
Browsing the Internet (30 min)
Email, establish an email account if you wish (30 min)
The Computer Club meets on 1st Thursday of each month, 9:30, Lewis Point Room T08
Contact: Bert Holmes (215-394-8475)
We strive to make the benefits of computer technology accessible for those who wish to utilize it. The club occasionally conducts training courses on
Basic Computer, Introduction to Computers, and Basic E-mail.
At our regular meetings we have speakers on various computer-related topics. Whether you are a member or not, you are welcome to join us at any of our general sessions.
There are many benefits to being a member of the club, regardless of how proficient you are with PC's. For just $10 a year per household, you have complete access to our Computer Room in Lewis Pointe T08 (not one of the regular computer labs) where we have computer terminals, books and periodicals. Your membership in the Computer Club also includes a Photography Club membership.

We have monthly meetings to discuss the ever-changing world of computing as well as practical methods for making your computer easier to use and understand. If you would like to learn more, come to a meeting at 9:30 AM on the first Thursday of the month.
