February 2020 UPDATE

Welcome to the new year at U3A. A special welcome to new members. At this stage of the year many of our courses are fully subscribed. Good news, but we need your help to step up and create new activities. Contact me with ideas and suggestions and I will explain how to get started.

Activities in 2020 will be those listed on the courses page.

A few suggestions for new activities have been thrown around. These include an intermediate level Conversational French class, self run as we do not have a convenor for this activity, another Book Club, a Memoir Writing group, a Photography class or a few sessions around improving your holiday photos and making photo albums. Chess, Card Games (other than Bridge) and Cribbage are other possibilities. Any new ideas please forward to a Committee member or myself.

Sarah Berry is organising some interesting arts related activities, called Arts Happenings in 2020. Details are here.

Annette Signorini is planning on conducting an activity around Linguistics. Yell if you are interested. More details as they become available.

We have had offers of a speaker for:

  1. Wills, Probate and Powers of Attorney
  2. Stroke prevention
  3. A look at the culture of African people who are refugees and asylum seekers to Australia.

By now hopefully you have seen the website at u3ahbwilli.org.au – feedback would be appreciated. Darby Higgs has stepped forward to take over managing the site. Please email Darby with comments about the website and any contributions.
