THE END OF AN ERA

After 24 years of successfully helping Seniors to master diverse computing activities, the Hurstville Seniors Computer Club has come to an end.

 
At a meeting on 29 June 2022 a motion was passed "That the Hurstville Seniors Computer Club be wound up and all Club assets be disposed of in a manner determined by the committee and acceptable to the Department of Fair Trading"
 
The club was formed in April 1998 by George Thompson who became the inaugural President. One of the reasons for the success of the club has been stable groups of committee members, with only three Presidents in the past 24 years.
  • 1998-2002   George Thompson (dec)
  • 2003-2004   Maxine Gray (dec)
  • 2005-2022   Pamela Samuels
 
As well as Pamela's long reign at the helm, she was Secretary from 1999 to 2004. Another long-standing member is Graeme Gavin, who is the sole surviving member of the inaugural committee.
