The Senior Center gets with the ‘90s. Now, in the reception area, we sport a brand new computer with Internet access. Boy, all those seniors are going to become addicted and spend lots of time at the Center playing with the Internet. That is, just as soon as we all learn how to get into the system.
Reed Helmly of CompuVision donated the computer, installed it, and even offered help to teach us how to use it. What would we do without people like Reed, and he’s a newcomer to New Braunfels.
Another newcomer, Lee Thomas, is working hard for die Center and is planning that super seminar April 7, to describe and explain the ways a person can give to charitable organizations, avoid capital gains taxes, establish flexible income and create corporate tax deductions, all
while providing community goodwill and the satisfaction of ^elf-directing the use of* social capital versus letting the government do it for yod. What would we do w i t h o u t-newcomer personalities.
Sign up for this free lunch, 11:30 a.rn., and extremely interesting seminar right away, (210) 606-4547.
Monday is St. Patrick’s Pay. One way to celebrate is to join the fun for ’The Luck of the Irish'* luncheon and style show being held at the Center that day beginning at 11:30 arn Be
