WINDOM -- A Senior Computer Lab is being offered on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Windom Education & Collaborative Center (WECC) Computer Lab Room #101. The lab is located at the Business, Arts & Recreation Center, 1012 Fifth Avenue, Windom. The program is developed for persons age 60 and older to learn basic skills and have hands-on time with computers. The Senior Lab program started Feb. 8 and is scheduled through May 23.

These computer lab sessions have two aspects. On the second Wednesday of each month a basic topic will be taught. On the fourth Wednesday, lab time will be hands-on time for participants to work on anything they have interest in or work further on the lessons. Topics include: learning the basic key functions of the computer, browsing/surfing on the internet, creating a basic word document, and setting up an email account.
