community.)

HEADLINE:  Come Join Us!

The community spirit of people helping people always brings lasting joyful experiences as we share our knowledge with one another. Whether you are a computer novice, an expert or just trying to figure out how to make your stubborn computer do something you need; this is the place for you. Working with other club members eventually becomes the most valuable benefit of membership.

History

Bill Proesch  & Lee Keller were the Co-Founders of PC Rams Computer Club in 1989

When Palm Beach Lakes Community High School opened in the late 80’s, it was a new facility that included modern computer labs.  The Adult and Community Education Department Assistant Principal, Randy Davis wanted to include computer classes in his adult education offering through the Community School but lacked the instructors to get started.

The PC Rams Computer Club was organized by a small band of bulletin board system (BBS) users who responded to a meeting announcement to gather at Palm Beach Lakes Community High School on April 26, 1989 for the purpose of forming a new PC Users Group. The recently-opened school was seeking a pool of talent from which to hire instructors for its adult education computer classes and a deal was struck to allow the new club use of facilities in exchange.

The name was chosen in a free-for-all meeting with many suggestions, combining our interest in the PC with the name of the school’s mascot RAMS.

Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, the Club was independent of the school while working hand-in-hand with them throughout the 90’s before moving on to another location.
