Advances in personal communications devices such as cell phones keep occurring at almost breakneck speed, making it difficult for those of us who grew up with rotary dial phones to keep pace.  

           

Take texting, for example.  While your children and grandchildren can breeze through sending messages, for the rest of us, just trying to decipher “LOL” or “PLOS” may be prove an exercise in frustration.

           

If you’re someone who finds texting confusing, the Fullerton Community Center may be able to help clear up some of the mystery.

           

“Texting 101,” a special workshop designed to explain the ins and outs of texting, is being offered by the center Thursday, Jan. 26.  The workshop, which will be held at 10 a.m., will teach participants how to master this practical and convenient form of instant communication.

           

The workshop will be held at the Fullerton Community Center’s temporary location at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 400 W. Commonwealth Ave.

           

The Community Center moved to the church quarters last June to make way for construction of a new 45,000-square-foot community center which will replace the existing center and the Fullerton Boys and Girls Club building, with both agencies incorporated into the new community center.

           

The workshop is free;  however, pre-registration is required.  Participants are to bring their cell phones with them.

           

Registration and further information may be obtained by calling the center at (714) 738-6305.

           

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the “Texting 101” are asked to notify the center staff prior to Jan. 26.
