Our 25th Anniversary Celebrations

Dorothy Rose Pallesen cuts 25th Anniversary cake

On 17th October, 2018 we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of SeniorNet Nelson.
We opened the Learning Centre back in 1993 at St John’s Church Hall, Hardy Street, Nelson.

Twenty-five years on, at our Hall in Pioneer Park, we were delighted to be able to welcome special Guests: Dorothy-Rose Pallesen, Sheila Neilson, Annette Curtis and Graeme Valpy. The three women were part of the Steering Committee back in 1992 prior to the formation of the organisation in New Zealand. They are unfortunately the only survivors from that group of 1992 computer enthusiasts.

It was 1993 when they were joined by Graeme Valpy who subsequently made an incredible contribution to SeniorNet Nelson in many roles and for many long years. 
It was wonderful to have all four “pioneers” in the same room together after such a long time.

We had a full programme on our History, the present and the future, as well as much laughter and entertainment.
