The cold of winter seems to increase the discomfort felt by arthritis sufferers.
Arthritis South Australia will be running a session for Strathalbyn U3A members and their friends which will provide an overview of arthritis and osteoporosis and steps we can take to improve our bone health.
Arthritis SA Community Talk 13th August 2020 Strahalbyn
1.00pm – 3.00pm in the Catholic Church Hall Chapel St.

As the third school term begins Strathalbyn U3A is starting up quite a few of our activities.
The revised program has been added to our “Program” page and as far as possible members have been advised.
Some activities, in particular those where Social Distancing cannot be guaranteed, will not resume.
We are fortunate that our region has not been impacted by the Corona Virus but vigilance and correct adherence to the sanitising and Social Distancing protocols are still vital for our continued good health.
Social Isolation has an upside as it provides uninterrupted time to create, achieve, complete, ponder and review any number of activities that we may not have otherwise done.
Our most recent newsletter for May 2020 (found on the Newsletter page of this site) illustrates how some of our groups have overcome the restrictions created by Social Isolation to continue their U3A activities.
Eventually life will return to some semblance of normal and we will emerge wiser and more caring about the importance of human interaction and socialising as well as experiencing again the pleasure of sharing a coffee at the local cafe.
As restrictions are lifted the committee will begin the process of restoring access to activities and venues.
All activities of the Strathalbyn U3A have been postponed until further notice.
Registrations for 2020 have been very brisk and as a result some of our activities have reached capacity.
However as the year progresses vacancies will occur so please register your interest in being on a waiting list and in the meantime there are interesting alternatives to keep you entertained. Alternatively, if there is a lot of interest, we may be able to start up new groups.
