Speaking of Silvercom, we’re pleased to pass on this message from them:

Silveridge is a great place to be for people who enjoy using today’s technology. Why? Silveridge is home to one of the top computer and technology clubs in the East Valley, Silvercom Computer & Technology Club. This organization of avid technology followers and leaders has been active at Silveridge for more than 25 years.
Though Covid brought SCTC to its knees this past season, club leaders are gearing up for a great kickoff this coming November. Until then, Silveridge residents–past, present & future–need to know they have an opportunity every week to enjoy an hour of free technical fun brought to them by SCTC’s very talented Program Director, Ron Brown.
When Covid-19 shut down Silveridge on March 13, 2020, Dr. Ron (a retired Canadian physician) felt strongly that something needed to be done to help seniors keep up to date with information about and knowledge of advances in technology. Examples are 5G Internet, ‘wearable technology’ that promotes a healthier lifestyle, streaming TV for better content at less cost, and many more.
Ron Brown quickly organized a weekly hour-long Zoom meeting for SCTC members and others called Tech for Seniors, which is now in its second year and reaches a total audience of more than a thousand US and Canadian seniors each week. All of the episodes are recorded and are available on YouTube.
It’s easy to access these programs on YouTube by typing https://tinyurl.com/yxee9yhh into your browser’s URL address bar. Those reading this issue of Silveridge Sun in their email should be able to simply click on the link above to view any of the nearly 60 TFS episodes.
Stay safe, healthy and enjoy your summer wherever you are,
Carol Folker, SCTC President
