Social Media Classes Prove Beneficial for Seniors

Su Mansur, service chair, provided the club with an update on this year's service project, funded by a District grant. 
"Accessing Social Media Computer Classes for the older adult population presented by knowledgeable, committed instructors at the Senior Center of Stoneham proved a popular community project."
The report goes on to say that classes of six to eight seniors were presented the classes in different sessions in the winter and early spring, and that 100% of the students providing feedback reported that the classes enabled them to gain access to social media sites and use them effectively. The seniors included comments such as "great class & very informative," "excellent and patient instructors-thank you," and "very well-run classes."
Our three-member service committee spearheaded the project, and many of our members visited the classes to offer support to the seniors. Thank you to all who participated.
Service  projects that make a true difference in our community is what being a Rotarian is all about! We look forward to many more successful service projects in the future. This project only happened because one of your fellow members recognized a need in our community and figured out how to fill it. Bring your ideas to the membership, and we will help to make an impact on the lives of our neighbors.
