U3A Healesville

University of the Third Age

News from the Committee: October 2019

We now have almost 250 members.

Two new classes began this term: Music Matters and Get Smart with Technology.

Thanks go to everyone who assisted in the garden project. The grounds look better already and will be further enhanced with the purchase of a garden seat.

The first trip for Hit the Road was enjoyed by all.  It is expected that another one will be organised for early 2020.  Thanks go to Anne Catchpole for her exceptional organisational skills.

In September, the Ukulele Group took part in the Ukulele festival at Norfolk Island, which was most enjoyable.  They have played successfully in several concerts in recent weeks and are busy practising for upcoming gigs. You may have heard them playing at the Healesville October Sunday market.

To improve communication and to promote our U3A, we now have a new Notice Board located at the entrance to the Court House, and a tear drop banner, which is available for display at events.
