NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Senior Surf Day in Northeast Minneapolis on March 28


Many seniors are super surfers, tweeting and linking in and spending their retirement hours staying in touch with the grandchildren, the neighborhood, the Legislature and the globe. Others have thrown up their able hands and decided to sit out the social media wave. Interestingly enough, the distance between the two groups is not as great as some may suppose.

One way to bridge the gap is to learn computer basics at Senior Surf Day, Wednesday, March 28, 10:30-12:30 at the Northeast Library, 2200 Central Avenue NE. Free and open. Register by phone at 612 543 6775 or online.

The class offers a chance to learn the basics, how to navigate and search the Internet and how to access websites of interest to seniors. Get hands-on computer experience with help from representatives of the Senior LinkAge Line.

Presented in collaboration with the Minnesota Board on Aging and the Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging.
