It’s time to start filling the diary!
The 2019 Strathalbyn U3A Program has been finalised and it and the registration form are on the website.
We have some new programs on offer – Belly Dancing, Mahjong, a revamped philosophy “The Art of Living Well” and for the craft inclined members we have Crafting for Charity and Scrapbooking.
The Local History Cemetery visits are organised and the Book Club books have been chosen.
If you are not sure whether you can fit everything in then check out this spread sheet your u3a month 2019
As most activities are winding up for the year planning for the 2019 program is well under way.
Just a few activities have been deleted but their space is being taken up by some interesting new options.
In addition to the ones mentioned in the November newsletter we will offer Scrap Booking and see the return of Creative Writing.
We had two teams attending the Quiz Night held recently at the Strathalbyn Town Hall in aid of Country Life Compassion and their Food Pantry. Our teams scored a first and third against stiff competition from the 19 tables attending.
Due to the interest in learning Italian we have had to move the group to larger accommodation so as of 7th March 2018 the venue will be the Catholic Church Hall in Chapel Street.
Registrations for the year have been steady and all but a few groups have started.
There has been a slight delay for “Out in the Shed” as the final setting up of the new Shed on Milnes Road is still being carried out. The wait will be worthwhile as the facilities are looking good.
Now that the AGM and registrations have been completed it is time for groups to swing into action for the year.
Just in case your calendar is not filled with activities Recorder has returned to the program and will be held on the first and third Thursdays at the Anglican Church Hall on East Tce. Details on the program page.
For those who find Japanese, French and Italian not enough we are exploring the option of adding Mandarin to the list. Send us an email if you are interested.
2018 = 365 days to fill with interesting activities!
The program is now here on the website so it is time to take out the brand new diary and decide which of our activities can be included to help make your year interesting and rewarding.
