One reply on “October Registration for Seniors’ Computer Classes”

  1. I highly endorse the programs at both the Putnam Valley and Mahopac Senior Centers. I taught classes at both facilities for four years and our success rate was notable. Great management, terrific instructors and committed volunteers. It’s never too late to start to gain confidence and enjoyment in our new technological environment.
