Judy has been practicing physical therapy for over 30 years. She is a certified manual therapist and was the first Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in Kansas City.

Hello Everyone

As you know, SenCom is a 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Corporation that provides computer education and support for seniors.

We maintain a computer lab in partnership with The City of Shawnee Parks & Recreation Department. Income from our Workshop fees and Membership dues provide up-to-date computers and software for our lab.

During the past few years, our bank balance has steadily decreased. To help address this problem, the Board of Directors recently decided to implement a Donation program.

We plan to have an annual donation campaign each year from October through December. However, in order to help with our expenses for the current fiscal year, we are beginning the program now.  We would like to ask you to consider making a small contribution of $10 or $20 to SenCom.

This will help us toward being able to balance our budget. Any donations to our group are tax deductible. The Board of Directors feels that SenCom offers a valuable service to seniors.

We hope you feel the same and will consider helping us. Click on “Donate” in the top menu for a Donation Form that you can print and mail with your contribution to:

Mike Hurley
5731 W. 87th St.
Overland Park, KS 66207.

Please make the check out to SenCom.
Thank you.
Mike Hurley, SenCom Treasurer



Due to the considerable amount of interest, SenCom has decided to hold an informal Question and Answer group to deal with the iPad.  We will have some short topics to discuss, but the main thrust of this SIG is to have a place where you can informally ask your questions, or raise issues about the iPad.

SenCom gratefully acknowledges the following organization for their workshop support:
