The Aurora Seniors Computer Group is focused on helping members use their computers. We have regular meetings open to all members at 10:00 am each Tuesday where we present a program of computer instruction. We frequently invite outside presenters to address specific technical and equipment topics. We also hold a Tuesday afternoon drop-in to provide personalized help when required. Computers may be desktops, laptops or tablets (iPad or Android), Windows OS or Mac OS.
Unless a presentation, workshop or teaching session is scheduled in the Computer Room, the computers are available for individual use by ASA members during the hours when the Centre is open. In practice, we try to keep Friday available for personal use.
See our calendar for scheduled days and times.

Information and Activities for October 2017
October is upon us. The summer is over and we are heading towards the end of the year. We will soon be spending much more time indoors. This is the time when signing up for computer classes will increase your knowledge and give you a good reason to return to the Senior Centre and be among friends. Consider signing up ahead of time. Next classes are in November.
If you are interested in either the Windows course or the Mac course please register early! Space is limited in each class and we also need a minimum number or the class will be cancelled.
This Month is a five week month. This means extra seminars, more knowledge to acquire.
