The buffet roast lunch with baked vegetables starts at noon and includes bread rolls, dessert, tea and coffee, while the tech session starts at 1.45pm.

“After the Quarterly Seniors Lunch we will be offering a free afternoon tea combined with some simple discussions on using technology,” Judith says.

“We have retained a highly credentialed technology tutor who has experience in working with seniors.

“His expertise is in helping seniors to build a healthier relationship with technology including computers, phones, tablets, laptops, TVs and audio devices.”

Graham MacDermott is the principal of The Tech Tutors, which he established specifically to provide affordable help for seniors.

Judith says Graham has a patient approach to teaching and can adapt teaching methods to suit each student.

|“His background includes over 35 years of various technology experience including 16 years in law enforcement,” she says.|

“Graham worked as a Detective in the Queensland Police Service where he developed skills in forensic computing.

“Graham became a trainer himself in forensic practices, teaching other officers these skills and has run many training courses related to technology.”

The lunch, which costs $25, and free tech event are on Thursday, October 20 at the the Arana Leagues Club Foundation Room.
