The U3A Committee News in July

July Newsletter

As we are now well into the wet and cold winter, several of our coordinators are taking a break. As a result, some of our regular U3A activities will be in recess for July and August, viz. Travel Tales and Tea & Tour for Ten in July, Let’s Do Coffee and Books @ Cobden, Trivia Afternoon and Mindfulness in July and August and there will be no Bike Ride or Hike in August. In addition, there will be no committee meeting in July.

Once again, we wish to ask members to put on their thinking caps and provide suggestions to the committee for new activities, new restaurants and places to visit that we can include as a U3A offering, so if you have any suggestions, please send these via e-mail to or ring the Secretary on 0429 951 643. In particular, we would like your suggestions for a suitable venue to cater for 50-60 members for our end-of- year lunch.

One proposal from the recent meeting was for possible inclusion of chess as an activity and we would like to gage the interest of members in being involved as this might be a good companion game on the days that cribbage is offered. If you have an interest in playing chess, and would like to participate, can you please advise the Secretary on 0429 951 643.
