Essex Center’s New iN2L Computer System

For more than 80 years, the Elizabethtown Social Center has been there for the people of
Elizabethtown, New York in their time of serving the needs of all people, especially for youths
12 to 18 years old. Last fall, Elizabethtown Social Center Trustee Jim Kinley uncovered some
monies that was stashed away in an account since 1987. Jim wanted to do something with that
money so he called Essex Center and spoke to Beth McLaughlin, the facility’s Activity Director
and asked Beth what item would the residents benefit from most. Beth was taken by Jim’s
generosity and did ask about the iN2L computer system, which is what the residents would need,
for psychological, educational, communicational and socially entertaining purposes that would
include all residents. Jim got the board's approval and now in February, this new technology has
brought smiles to residents. Both Centers are now looking towards intergenerational programs
with youths and seniors.
