Announcements

    • Auction. This is also the place to find out all about our KEGABUCK$ program.

    • KEGS has a unique and exceptionally gratifying arrangements with three very important community service providers.
       
      1. In 1999 KEGS recognized the opportunity to further assist our community by enhancing a computer training lab at the North Bellevue Community & Senior Center.  Using totally donated equipment and volunteer time, KEGS designed, built and installed a state-of-art computer training lab valued at $95,000.00. 

        Please visit our open letter of thanks to the original 1999 computer lab contributors.

        At the beginning of the Fall 2002 class sessions, the records show that 509 individual students had received training in the new facility (many of those students having attended multiple training sessions).

        KEGS continues to be responsible for administration and upgrades in the lab.  Recently KEGS negotiated the donation of over $27,000.00 of current software needed to upgrade the lab to today's standards.

        Please visit our page that identifies who contributed to our 2002 Lab Upgrade.

        2009 - THE COMPUTER LAB MAKES BIG CHANGES

        In October of 2009 the North Bellevue Community & Senior Center converted it's large dedicated computer lab to a more flexible portable computer lab consisting of all wireless laptop computers and equipment on a private wireless network.  The NEW LAB can now be used virtually anywhere in the building and the new equipment is capable of supporting all the latest software requirements.
