ICC  
Closing Letter

June 19, 2014

Dear ICC Guest,

It is with great regret that I must announce the closing of the Intergenerational Computer Center.  Oklahoma City University has decided to permanently close the ICC effective June 30, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. 

The ICC staff and I are grateful you have chosen to spend time at the ICC and we have enjoyed getting to know many of you.  We hope that in some way your life has been enriched by having access to computers, the internet, and the computer classes that we have offered.

In the two and a half years that the ICC has been open, we have had approximately 65,000 visits and over 120,000 hours of computer use.  We have partnered with over 50 community organizations to help individuals find employment, prepare for the GED test, learn to speak English, enhance computer skills, and improve life situations.

On the back of this letter is a list of resources that may be helpful.  Please do not hesitate to talk with any of our staff for additional information.

If you are working toward your certification in one of the MS Office products, please talk to an ICC staff member at the ICC Help Desk.  Time slots will be available through August 15, 2014, for you to complete your certification.

Thank you for being part of our ICC family.  The ICC staff and I appreciate the opportunity to have worked with you and we wish you the best of luck in the future.

Sincerely,

 

Teena Belcik

Executive Director
