Sen. Art Linares and AT&T Connecticut representatives hosted an April 4 event in Old Saybrook to help seniors learn how to use their cell phones and other new technologies to stay connected with family and friends. The free workshop at the Estuary Council of Seniors was attended by more than 25 seniors. “These new technologies are exciting and they can help seniors stay connected to family and friends like never before,” said Sen. Linares. “But sometimes learning about a new technology can be difficult, and that’s why this event was aimed at helping demonstrate new technologies and answering questions about how to use them. I thank area seniors for stopping by.” Those who could not attend the workshop may contact Sen. Linares at 800 842 1421 or at Art.Linares@cga.ct.gov .
