A WORD FROM THE U3A COMMITTEE
MAY IS BRING A FRIEND MONTH so for all activities you are invited to bring a friend(s). If you bring a friend, when booking yourself in, book your friend(s) also. This is a great way for socialisation for everyone and hopefully gain new members.
Given that from an analysis of enrolment data the current membership is very Cobden-Camperdown centric, at its recent meeting the Committee looked at costs for a range of suitable venues around the Corangamite Shire with the view finding new venues to use for activities and increasing a range of offerings in the north and south of the Shire.
The Committee noted that there were several venues not currently used by U3A that could be hired at reasonable cost and given the costs, the Committee will be in a much better position to look at arranging a range of activities across the whole Shire in the future – watch this space!
At the last meeting the Committee looked briefly at a proposed information series related to the Warm Safe Home Project 2022. The Committee wishes to thank to those members that completed the information sheet that was included in the April newsletter. The responses received have been collated and forwarded to mpower who is managing this project.
A couple of items in May that the Committee would like to make special mention of:
A Very Special Mothers’ Day on Friday 6th May @ 1.30pm
A special road trip on Wednesday 18th May to Warrnambool Wildlife and Allansford Hotel – the Committee thought it was a good to try and expand its offerings and have an activity outside of the Shire.
Full details of both these events are given later in the newsletter.
