The Three Phases Of Elvis Presley’s Music
 Thursday, March 14th    10-11am             
Elvis Presley was a “phenomenon” in the early 1950’s through his death in 1977.  His music can be divided into three parts, with some overlap:  Early Elvis (1950 through 1958, when he was drafted into the U.S. Army), Elvis in the Movies (31 movies from 1956 through 1969) and Late Elvis (1965 to 1977).  We will track his singing career and play many of his “Top 40” songs.

The Computer Lab is Looking for Instructors

Like to help others? Have an inquisitive mind? Use electronic devices like a desktop computer, a laptop computer, a tablet, or a smartphone?    Consider joining the Computer Lab instructor team. They help members use their electronic   devices and software applications.  This is not a professional team.  It is Senior Center members that have acquired a level of skill on some of these devices and software and want to help other members use and enjoy theirs. Not sure you have the knowledge or skills to do this?   We will team you up with another instructor until you are   comfortable doing it alone. If you are interested in helping with this service, contact Kathy Sazima RN at 440-580-3277.
