Senior Computer Users Group


The Senior Computer Users Group is a non-profit group of 50-years-old and older adults, retirees and community members interested in learning more about computers.

The number of Covid cases has been reduced and the Bordini Center has removed meeting restrictions. The Senior Computer Users Group (SCUG) will again meet in-person at the Bordini Center.

At the April General Meeting we discussed problems that have been occurring the years before Covid. The meeting attendance has decreased, there have been problems getting speakers, and a number of the SCUG officers have resigned.

The decrease in attendance is a difficult problem to solve. Most people have computer knowledge from their daily jobs and don’t have an interest in our group. Computer programs have become easier to use and install. The computer vendors used to have speakers who would speak at our meetings. These speakers have disappeared. Computers have become commodities and many everyday items have computers in them.

The number of meetings has been reduced from 5 to 3. The Resource Sharing SIG and the Internet SIG have been combined with the General Meeting. There will be a question and answer period in the General Meeting.

The President, Treasurer, and Secretary of the group have resigned. These officers need to be replaced. In you are interested please contact the group.

This is the thirty-first year our group has been in existence. If you have any thoughts about how we can keep the group going forward please share your thoughts with the group.
