Teeniors Tech Camp

On Aug. 9, 2018, the Office of Senior and Social Services hosted a Tech Camp at the Paradise Hills Senior Center. At this event Teeniors were paired with seniors to help with tech questions. The Teeniors helped seniors navigate their tablets, smart phones, and computers. Some seniors wanted help taking photos and sending them to loved ones, others with email, or just understanding their devices. It was a great event and very well received! Please check out some photos from the event below.

  • Bulbs are like magic. Place them in the ground in the fall and they produce masses of flowers for years to come. Daffodils, tulips, crocus hibiscus – so many choices! Some say the perfect “bulb” is the iris, which actually does not grow from bulbs but from large fleshy roots called rhizomes. There are many choices for size, color and timing. Discussions will include selection, planting and care, and even eating bulbs! This event is free, but registration is required by clicking the link below.
