We are very grateful to the 12 sponsors who helped fund the SeniorNet Nelson 2020 Calendar published by our Digital Imagery Group (DIG). The calendar shows off the attractions of the beautiful Nelson/Tasman Region in images all taken by DIG members. Each sponsor generously funded one month of the calendar and the quick sale of all the calendars made this endeavour a very successful fundraiser. We plan to highlight the "sponsor for the month" each month throughout the year to say thank you. To learn more about ALL THE SPONSORS CLICK/TAP THE IMAGE.

Our new TV is a feast for the eyes

For a long time now the faulty display from the digital projector in the Hall has been a bit of a distraction. It has not showcased the images of the Digital Imagery Group to best advantage and we have had recurring presentation issues at Interest Groups and meetings. So it was time to move on and upgrade to a large screen Smart TV and we are pleased to announce that is has been installed this week by members of the Technical Advisory and Media Groups.

Teach yourself online - an easy introduction to the Internet from GCFLearnFree

However we can still learn new digital and technical skills by checking out some great online tutorials. To start with here is an easy introduction to the Internet from GCFLearnFree that will help us master the Internet Basics needed to keep us updated and connected during CoVid-19 (it includes videos).
