Senior Citizens Day August 21

Senior Citizens Enjoy Hobbies that are Creative or Useful The majority of senior citizens, whether working or retired, enjoy hobbies and social activities. Crafting, woodworking, dancing, exercise, pets, travel, charity work and church are some of the preferred activities.

Senior Citizens are Tech Savvy More than 40% of seniors have computer access and are active online. About 15 million Facebook users are 65 and older. Along with social media sites where they can connect with friends and family, older computer users play online games, read news sites, sign up for dating sites, and contribute to sites related to their interests. They are bloggers, survey takers, shoppers, reviewers, photographers, and more.

Senior Citizens are Still Active in the Workforce There are currently over 5 million senior citizens who are active in the work force. That means that 5 million older people are still sharing their skills and expertise to help make the world and their industry a better place.

FUN FACT•FUN FACT • FUN FACT As per the Guinness Book of World Records - Jeanne Louise Calment was the oldest human who lived for 122 years and 164 days. She was born in France on February 21, 1875, and died at a nursing home in Arles, southern France, on August 4, 1997.

Making Connections Nate Schmitt is a man who wears many hats. As the information technology systems network engineer for Albany Mutual Telephone Association, he takes on several responsibilities to ensure AMTA members are receiving fast, reliable, high-quality technology services. “Work can be stressful with big jobs, but on regular days, it isn’t too hectic,” Schmitt said. “I like the flexibility my job offers.” Schmitt has been with AMTA for two years. Shortly after graduating Central Lakes College in Brainerd with a degree in cybersecurity, Schmitt joined the team. It is a perfect fit for him, as he enjoys working with technology. “I’ve always had an interest in computers and technology,” he said. “I like creating things. Before I started going to college, I was doing concrete work for about two years. I got tired of that. So, I went to college for something I knew I’d enjoy.” As a native of Lake Shore, Minn., the move to Albany for his job was a bit of a change. “It’s nice and quiet here,” he said of Albany. “I like the fact I can walk to several places in town.” At the central office in Albany, a few of Schmitt’s primary duties include maintaining and upgrading servers, configuring internet, phone, digital television and email service for subscribers, providing internal IT support, and resolving technical problems. Schmitt’s position requires him to have problem solving skills, an ability to learn quickly, a willingness to do substantial research and a firm understanding of computer language (i.e. coding). The biggest challenge Schmitt faces in his position is keeping track of the projects he needs to complete. “Each day I make a to-do list of what I need to get done and check off each task as I complete them,” he said. Another challenge Schmitt faced when he first started is learning the information needed to manage the central office. “In college they don’t teach you all the stuff that goes on in a central office ISP (internet service provider) or about landlines,” he said. Nevertheless, Schmitt embraces the constant changes within the technology industry. He works behind the scenes to ensure the network is running, software is up-to-date and the field technicians have the precise data needed for successful site visits to the homes and businesses Albany Mutual Telephone Association serves.
