JUNE 2017

Greetings to you all once again. If you are wondering about it I assure you I enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Perth and on the Indian – Pacific thank you.

If you missed the Musical Afternoon on 19th May you missed a treat. The audience numbered over 100 and every-one of them thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. The acts were so varied that all tastes were catered for, so even if perhaps you were not keen on one performance the rest made up for any disappointment. (Although by the noisy clapping I think all were well received.)

Melbourne Walks has again been a very popular class this year. The convenor, Alex Priestley wants to share his love and interest in the various places around Melbourne which are ideal for pedestrians to enjoy. Participants meet at Southern Cross station and then travel to the various starting points of the walks. Alex does not plan walks throughout winter and the last one this side of winter took place on 7th June. Feel free to contact Alex if you would like to join in: his number is 5781 1728.

Dog Walking is held on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Tuesday of each month except late Dec. & Jan. They walk all around Wallan, Wandong, Kilmore & Broadford usually commencing at 9.30am but in the summer they try to start at 8.30am or 9am. You don't even need to have a dog: some members have more than one & are happy to lend one. All shapes & sizes of dogs join in, the only requirement is they are on a secure lead, not extender ones. Usually after the walk they support the local cafes & have a hot drink & maybe a cake or 2. The convenor is Pam Freemantle her contact details are 57822134/0438562606 or email freemantle2u@gmail.com & let her know that you would like to join them & she will give you the relevant information. Please note you must be a U3A member as must all participants of all classes.

Lastly the Theatre Group keeps growing in leaps and bounds. Often there are 90 – 100 eager attendees from U3A. The convenor advises Vic Rail when she knows that the number of passengers will swell enormously on that day in the hope they may add a carriage to cater for the extra numbers. Norma is the convenor and she can be contacted on 0410697706.

If you would like more information about any of the classes, how to join, or for general information about U3A Kilmore & District activities the U3A contact address is U3Akilmore@y7mail.com or phone President Paul 57831940, or our Membership Officer Pam 57811728.
