Help Sessions:

If you want one on one help for a specific problem or something you’d like to learn, please email computerclub@lethseniors.com  giving a date and time and what you’d like help with.   The more detail you can give the more likely it will be that you get some beneficial help.  

We’ll try to hook you up with someone who will be able to help you in the lab.    This service is available to Computer Club members only.

Our members have different levels of expertise and areas of knowledge.   Complicated problems may be better solved by going to a qualified computer technician.

 

Remember the earlier your notice and the more detail you can provide the more likely you are to get help.   Any open dates and times can be used for one on one help or a workshop as long as the session is pre-arranged.

 

Email computerclub@lethseniors.com to be added to the email list or to ask for help from the computer club.
