MAY 2024

The first Members Morning Tea for the year will be held at the JJ Clancy Facility on Friday May 17th at 10am. Members are welcome to attend and enjoy a Singalong with the Ukulele Class. We will also be holding a "Memories of Sport" Competition; bring or wear something special from your sporting career. There will be prizes for Medals, Badges, Blazers Hats and other memorabilia. You are welcome to bring a plate to share.

The Recorder Group have settled in to their  new space within the JJ Clancy Centre and find that the large space does have good acoustics, which is a bonus. We have retained our players from last year plus welcome a new addition to the group. We have added a few good arrangements to our library thanks to Committee funding , which we hope to showcase later in the year either as a recital or as part of a concert . No dates are confirmed as yet but we aim for around September /October.  Keep an eye on the Newsletter for further information

Expressions of interest are being called for a new class to be held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, from 1 to 2.30 pm. If the interest is there the 1st class could commence in May. This class will help you understand Windows and Office on your laptop. The class will start slowly and build your confidence in using these programs. It will be informal but structured to start with. Initially we will start with Windows and later can advance to Apple Mac and other platforms as the need arises.

The garden group remain very active and in March, visited a beautiful country garden in Broadford. It had lots of nooks and crannies, a great vegetable garden and lots of chooks. The lucky attendees went home loaded with cuttings and plants.  Exposure to nature the gardens and gardening activities can positively affect mood, lower blood pressure and slow heart rate, so come on all you gardeners out there, join U3A and also enjoy the social benefits of the garden group.

U3A is open to people over 50 who are no longer working full time and is a fun and cost effective way to learn new skills, to meet like-minded people and to socialise.
