A press release from Mike Tryon:
Rep. Mike Tryon to Host Senior Technology Fair on March 26
CRYSTAL LAKE…..State Representative Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) will partner with AT&T on March 26 for a Senior Technology Fair at the McHenry County Senior Services building in Crystal Lake.
Jerry Mytych of the AT&T External Affairs Division and an AT&T retail store employee will talk with seniors from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM on the 26th about smart phones, smart phone applications that benefit seniors, and games that can be played on smart phones.
Seniors will also lean about easy ways they can communicate with loved ones and family members through Skype and Facetime. A question and answer session will be a part of the event.
“Smart phone technology can be intimidating, even to those who have used cell phones for a while,” said Tryon.
“This AT&T presentation includes easy-to-understand information for how smart phones and simple apps can help keep seniors connected to family, and make tasks like refilling prescriptions much easier.”
The McHenry County Senior Services building in Crystal Lake is located at 110 W Woodstock St. Attendance for the Senior Technology Fair is free. For additional information, those interested in attending may call Tryon’s office at (815) 459-6453.
