In March 2006 a public meeting was sponsored by ASCCA and the Maitland City Council to gauge interest in a computer club for seniors in Maitland. About 60 locals attended the public meeting which was opened by the Mayor; Clr Peter Blackmore. Peter King; an ASCCA director and member of both Computer Pals for Seniors Newcastle and Computer Pals for Seniors East Lake Macquarie invited participants to join a steering group to work towards the formation of a club. The Council Community Worker Ageing and Disability supported the steering committee. The club was established and joined ASCCA in June 2006. By October 2009 we had about 140 members.
