In the early summer of 1991, Kitsap Computing Seniors was founded by Rampton Harvey. After a Letter to the Editor resulted in 27 responses, four people began the task of forming an organization and developing plans for classes, labs and related computer activities.
Throughout the years, KCS’s membership has become greater and fewer, like many groups. But what has not changed is the dedication of a large number of volunteers involved who are dedicated to bringing Kitsap County residents into the world of computers and the internet. Accomplishing this has taken countless hours, meetings, cookies, agendas and cups of coffee.
It has also provided memories of excursions to The Museum of Flight, the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), and the Gates Foundation Visitor Center.
We have helped each other on topics ranging from creative writing to genealogy to stock investing. And we have given away more than 140 computers to those who needed them most.
Ramp’s original coordinating efforts have enriched our community, and the lives of those who have joined us. We hope you will, too.
