This reciprocity provides rich opportunities for transmission of knowledge and skills which benefits members and tutors alike. Call Terry Case 0427 621 700
Preparing for 2020
It’s almost 'Taster Time'! It is possible to attend many courses and activities during October and November as a 'taster'. If you know anyone who is thinking of joining U3A next year, please let them know about this. They need to speak with the convenor first and put their names of the roll when they attend, but do not need to join until next year.
It's also the time when new course ideas emerge and begin to be followed up. Keen coin collector Alex Adkins would like to gauge interest in organising an ongoing Coin Collectors group. Other course ideas for 2020 include Hot Topics, first piloted in 2018; Pitman Shorthand for past users of Pitman Shorthand (this is being run very successfully at U3A Melbourne); an Art group in partnership with Broken River Painters at their studio in the Migrant Camp precinct; a Family History Group in conjunction with Benalla Family Research group and a group which discusses current series on television, such as Hand Maid's Tale; Poldark; the new Sea Change, & more.
Details of new programs to be offered in 2020 will be discussed at Meet and Mingle in the coming months. Please contact our Program Coordinator, Terry Case (0427 621 700) if you have ideas for new courses or any other queries.
