Cyber Seniors at The Hub

Bridging the Technology Gap

Bridging the Technology Gap

We just found out about this wonderful program, and are going to tap in to their ideas and resources to see if we can team up some area students with our older area residents.

What with the University of Scranton, Marywood University, Penn State Worthington and Keystone Junior College, we should be able to help all those who wish to tap into technology.

Watch their trailer here to see what they did, and what we want to do as well.

Giving Back

How lucky our participants were to have the wonderful Keystone Sanitary Landfill choose to sponsor our Valentine’s Day Luncheon!
With live music and a new floor area for dancing, we enjoyed the company of 72 of our area friends. And the food was absolutely wonderful, what a treat! See the pics below that represent the great time everyone had including a box of Gertrude Hawk Chocolates sent by Mr. Denaples himself!

Marilyn & Bruce, married over 60 years, enjoy a Valentine’s Day dance.

The Mayor stops by to thank the Keystone Sanitary Landfill for their continued support.
