Computer Lab Upgrade
Date: July 6, 2015
Description: Thanks to SB County Supervisor James Ramos, we received funds to help us in updating our computer lab. Our computers were over 12 years old. That might not seem like much, but computer years are like dog years, only worse. They are considered ancient, but no more. We received a grant and have purchased new all-in-one computers. All are internet ready, and have the latest software. Two will have Windows 7, for those who like the old style, while the rest have Windows 8, and will be updated to Windows 10 when available. The Cyber Seniors class will get first crack at them when they start up on July 9th for their 4 week summer session, followed by the Computer Class in the fall. Get prepared to go online and explore the world.
Time: Dailys 1:00 p.m.
Cost: $10 per week members
$10 per week non-members
Location: Game Room
Description: At a movie you can feel it touching your heart And on every day of the summertime You\'ll hear children chasing ice cream carts They\'ll play it on your wedding day There must be \'bout a million ways To add some music to your day - “Add Some Music” by The Beach Boys This month we’d like to shine the light on a class that is about one of those million ways. When one thinks about the Harmonica (or French harp or mouth organ as it is also called) it might bring about images of a campfire in the Wild West, or maybe the Blues, but it has been used in all types of music including Rock, Asian, and classical. There are three basic types of harmonica; chromatic, diatonic, and the Asian tremolo, although there are many other types. Our class is taught by Adrienne Riley. She started here in May 2016, but has been teaching since 2009. Adrienne is self taught having started back in 2007 at her church. She had been taking gerontology classes at Chaffey college and got interested in helping seniors. She combine the two and decided to teach here. Her classes takes all levels. The initial start up is $60 for 6 weeks which gets you a book and a brand new harmonica to start. After that it’s only $10 per week. You must be able to breath to play! According to Adrienne, breathing is everything. Other than that rhythm is also something good to have. So if you can breath, you can play. Classes are on a break right now, but check you newsletter to see when they’ll be back.

Teacher Appreciation 2014
By: Mike Sylva
With the end of the school year (except for those attending summer school), it came time to have one last hurrah before we put ours pencils and paper away. After all our instructors do for our students, we here at the center, and alot of their students, thought we should show them just how much we appreciated all that they taught this past school year. Therefore we were happy to host a Teacher\'s Appreciation party where students could show up and let their teachers know how much they care.
We even had some dignitaries including a San Bernardino City Councilman Fred Shorett, Karen Batista, the Principal for San Bernardino Adult Ed, and S.B. School Board Members Margaret Hill and Mike Gallow. After Councilman Shorett led the class in the Pledge of Allegiance, came a quick aerobics warmup led by one of our aerobics instructors, Julia Regan.
Then it came time to recognize all of our teachers, Rosetta Love, Bob Harvey, CiCi Tenney, Steve Micklas, Julia Regan, Avon Hall, Pia Escalante, Ricardo Tomboc, Tracy Johnson, Lisa Ballard, Fred Hawkins, Kim Scarcella, Rita Sicilliano, Emmett Resendez, Carla Lechuga, and Sue Herbert.
No apples were given to the teachers. Instead they were given a box of See\'s Chocolates and an HSC backpack. Of course refreshments were also given to all in attendance. We would like to give our thanks to our hard working educators, as well Jeffrey Court who sponsored the event.
