CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Two of Franklin County's senior centers went online earlier this year and the success of the program has led to its expansion to the center in Chambersburg, according to county officials.
The senior activity centers in Waynesboro, Pa., and Greencastle, Pa., each received two computers and Internet access last spring, paid for with grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, according to Director of Aging Kim Murdaugh.
Interest in computer programs led the county commissioners to approve the installation of two computers at the Chambersburg Senior Activity Center in the county's administrative annex at 218 N. Second St.
Commissioner G. Warren Elliott said the computers will be operating at the center in four to six weeks.
"Participants enjoy surfing the Internet for stock market and mutual fund quotes, looking for recipes, travel information, the Weather Channel and access to many other sites," Murdaugh said.
