I’m sending this to the entire group for information about a meeting where access is usually limited to Town of Huntington residents with a Senior Citizen card.  The card can be obtained at the Senior Citizen Center.  The process takes about 5 minutes and requires identification such as a driver’s license.  We usually have non-residents attending as guest speakers or panelists.  If you would be available as a panelist, let me know and tell the attendant at the door that you are a panelist.


I hope you are all well.  Welcome to our second meeting  continuing our meetings at the Huntington Senior Center on Thursday, October 20th  at 1:30 PM in Room 214.  And we will attempt to continue at the same time and location on a monthly basis.  Our room is at least  twice as big as 205. 


Please confirm your interest in continuing as a member of our group, whether you will attend the 10/20 meeting, your preferred email address and any other information about your interests.  Also mention anyone else you know who was a member or would like to join us.  I am going through our prior sign in sheets as well.  I am a bit rusty and slower and need assistance in continued organizing.


A current area of interest is Robotics and Automation.  Several of us have organized an LI Chapter of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and we have purchased several educational robots. We put on several robotics workshops for children at the Harborfields Library and we plan to bring them to other libraries.  When mentioning it to Julia Frangione, she thought it would be a great workshop to present to other Seniors at the Center.  It would be in addition to our regular meetings.  We can continue discussing this at our meetings..


The agenda I am planning for our meeting is as follows:

1:30-2:00pm – each person attending will spend a few minutes bringing us up to date on their activities.

2:00-2:30pm – we will stream and pause to discuss the second lecture in The Great Courses Series Robotics.  An outline of the whole course is attached.

2:30-3:30pm – We will demonstrate and share operation of the Create3 Robot.

3:30-4:00pm - – we will evaluate the experience and decide whether to continue in future meetings, or do something else.


We are considering a Zoom connection for those with interest and concern who cannot attend in person.


I haven’t checked everyone yet, but I sadly report that we have lost two members and they will be missed.  Bob Bozzone and Don Clarke.  If you know of others, let me know.

Feel free to ask additional questions.


The Huntington Town Senior Citizens Center, 423 Park Avenue, Huntington, NY 11743.  It is on the South West side of the intersection of 25A and Park Ave.  It is a converted school and the first part of the building is leased to the Cinema Arts Center.  The Main road to the building is off Park Ave, South of the intersection.  The entrance to the building is past the Cinema Arts Center and it is well marked.  The entrance to the meeting area is on the West side of the building and is covered with a Maroon canopy.  We will be in Room 214, immediately to the right of the entrance.

I strongly recommend that everyone read through the details of earlier announcements and attachments and respond by stating their personal interests.  We form our programs in response to those statements.

We express our thanks to the IEEE Long Island Section for supporting the establishment of Engineers Clubs, the staff of the Huntington Senior Center for providing us the opportunity to use meeting rooms and the wonderful support they have provided. 


I wish everyone good health and thank you all for your contributions to our collective effort.
