On Monday, January 9th, 45 members attended the MCREA Winter Workshop/Meeting at the Hamilton Township Public Library. This year’s theme focused on the enhanced use of technology in our everyday lives. We were fortunate to have two outstanding presenters.
Dr. Damian Bariexca gave a presentation about internet safety for seniors, as well as an introduction to the world of QR codes. He certainly gave us insights into some of the pleasures as well as pitfalls of using Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. As a result, we are smarter consumers and “posters.” Our second guest was Mary Kay Podlecki, who presented “The Best Mobile Apps You Aren’t Using (Yet)”. Of particular interest was learning about the myriad of built-in features of smartphones and tablets.
A special thanks to officers and committee members who helped to make this workshop/meeting a delightful success.
