MARCH 2018

Hello again from U3A Kilmore & District Inc.

The main news from us this month is we are holding our AGM on Friday 16th March. It will be in the John Taylor room of the Kilmore library complex and commence at 10 am. The guest speaker is retired Army Major Peta Langbehn. This lady has done some amazing things and is well worth a listen. Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting.

Another very welcome piece of news (for us) is that we now have a larger area for our meetings and the area could be suitable for some classes as well. We held our first meeting in the ‘new’ area on 22nd February and we all appreciated the extra space. We are very appreciative of the Shire for granting us this larger area.

All our classes have begun and are settling in nicely. Some participants had socialized together over the holiday time but those who had not, enjoyed catching up with every one and finding out who did what during the break.

The first meeting of the new class, “Planes, Trains and Caravan towing”, fulfilled participants’ expectations with clear explanations of how/why aeroplanes can fly despite their huge sizes and weight. ….not sure if I really wanted to know….only makes me more aware about things!! It seems I sometimes want to operate on, “I don’t want to know thank you”. (If I don’t know about it I can’t worry about it!).

However I am in a minority and the other participants eagerly look forward to the next instalment in March.

When the book group met for the first time in 2018 we welcomed 3 or 4 new members. They had been given advance notice of the appropriate book and were able to join in the discussion. Once again, after dealing with the issues raised in the book, we were able to solve several of the world’s problems; if only ‘they’ would listen to us!

That’s all for this month. If you would like any information about anything related to U3A you can contact us at our new email address:

or telephone our membership officer on 5781 1728.

Cheers until next month, Wendy
