Seniors play day @ Eltham Lions Club Rooms
Apr 24 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The Lions Club of Eltham are having two more ‘seniors play days’, one on Wednesday, 14th April and the other on Saturday, 24th April. In each case, there will be a morning session 10-11.30am and an afternoon session 12.30-2pm. Refreshments will be provided.

The Lions Club noticed during the Covid lockdown that many of our seniors have found it difficult to cope with Zoom and Skype. So they thought that it would be nice to have a morning tea, where seniors could come along with their phones, tablets or laptops and try using their video software under the watchful eye of a mentor. This will all be done in a friendly and supportive environment which is designed to help everybody get a basic feel for these programs.

To register as either a participant or as a mentor, go to their website and click the link of the relevant session.

The Lions Club has partnered with Nillumbik Council, Nillumbik U3A, healthAbility and the Living & Learning Centre to bring this event to fruition.
