Computers and their applications are fun to use, fun to figure out how to operate, and fun to talk about. The purpose of the Lake Gaston Computer Club is to facilitate all three of these concepts. We do this through meetings, classes and forums.
In our meetings, we explore the capabilities of these digital marvels with presentations by locals and experts from out of town. The forums are informal affairs where interested people meet, watch demonstrations, raise questions and discuss their experiences. Our classes are based on popular applications, and we sponsor a number of active Special Interest Groups on Genealogy, MAC computers and iPads. A "key function" in our operation is the much appreciated technical support group at our Repair Shop. So if you have a problem with your computer, the Repair Shop can likely help you out on Monday mornings.
The Lake Gaston Computer Club helps its members understand the most current computer technology and learn the skills necessary to function in today’s world. It offers something for everyone and provides opportunities to meet new friends.
