Our last Meet & Mingle on Wednesday saw 70 members attend. Singers, recorder players and audience all enjoyed a lovely musical morning. Thanks to the singers for the delicious spread to have with our morning tea.
It has once again been a busy and successful year for Benalla U3A. Our membership is steadily growing and the courses we have on offer are attracting many new members.
The biggest of thank you's go to all the hard working and dedicated convenors. With out them Benalla U3A would not be as successful as we are. On a personal note my thanks to the Committee for a great years work and all the support they give me.
I wish all members a Very Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.
See you all happy & healthy at Registration Days in January.
