Welcome to Term 1, 2017
A new year is upon us. I trust all enjoyed Christmas time and the beginning of 2017.
Our thoughts have been very much with Ron Duffey. We send him our sympathy following the sudden death of Carmel. Carmel was always a keen member of our U3A, attending many sessions and was in charge of our tea/coffee supplies. Her always cheerful presence will be missed.
Our speaker co-ordinators Leigh Bowden and Marg Large have been busy setting our program for the term. Please take note of the first session 'Getting to Know You'. Leigh will facilitate a round table session where we'd like you to bring along all your ideas and expectations for Cootamundra's U3A. This session is for your input, so please make use of this opportunity. It will be informal and we anticipate lots will follow from the discussions/suggestions.
We have booked eight sessions for a new group of Mah Jong enthusiasts. This will have to be on Mondays from 9.45 am-12 noon, the only time available to us and the leader. The first two sessions will be for absolute new players, not for those already with some experience. Following these two sessions, we will open the times for anyone wishing to brush up on their Mah Jong skills.
This course depends on numbers making it worthwhile, so we need to have names before Monday 1 February. Please ring me on 69421158 to ensure the course starts.
I should like thank all involved in our end of year luncheon last year. It was great!
For those who have not met our U3A South Western ACT Regional Representative, Jim Nichterlein, there will be an opportunity to do so when he presents a session on Brain Games. This should be very interesting and helpful in keeping our minds active. We may need both rooms for that session.
See you at next term's activities.
Please remember to wear your name badge.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off
