COMPUTER SUPPORT: Some of us may feel like this at times: Grandpa is sitting at a table in his front yard with a big sign on the front of a table that reads: GRANDPA’S COMPUTER REPAIR. There is a sledge hammer and a regular hammer on the table in front of him with a garbage can beside the table and pieces of computers in the garbage can. As a senior, if you are in need of computer support/help, don’t go to that kind of Computer Repair, please contact Seniors Outreach and our Digital Director will set up a time/place to assist you.
