"Pomp and Circumstance" at Paumanack Village

 

On September 20, 2013, graduation certificates were presented to 11 deserving residents of Paumanack Village in Greenlawn, NY who completed a rigorous 16-week curriculum taught by SeniorNet Computer Mobile Learning Center volunteers. The proud graduates began with classes in basic computer skills and progressed to Internet, E-Mail, Digital Photography, Music and more. A very happy graduate won a SeniorNet refurbished computer and everyone enjoyed refreshments provided by the Paumanack Village Administration.
 

Paumanack Village Graduates   

Last year the administrators of Paumanack Village, a low-income section 8 community, decided to sponsor this educational project for the benefit of its residents. Attending the ceremony, which took place at the Paumanack Village clubhouse, were Paumanack Village Housing President Bill Davidson along with Service Coordinators Mary D'Agostino and Stephanie Edson. Leading the group of SeniorNet volunteers who attended was Slava Vero, Family Service League board member and SeniorNet Director who often states that she is always pleased when SeniorNet's unique teaching method helps another group of senior citizens across the "Digital Divide" into the 21st Century.
