Following a successful enrolment day, we welcomed back external activities and a number of classes at the Hub and the Town Hall in early February.
We have received the welcome news that access to the Seniors Centre will possible from Monday 22 February. Guided by convenors, members need to follow Covid regulations which include, where possible, signing in to the building using the QR Code available on the door of the Seniors building and as a laminated copy in the U3A Meeting Room. Ticking the class roll will satisfy requirements as phone numbers have been listed on the roll for contact purposes.
We are also asking members to 'book in' for classes and activities by email or phone where possible, (as Chat N Chew, Wine Appreciation already do) so the convenors know numbers likely to attend.
Coffee, tea and milk will now be available in the Seniors Building and the Hub, however you will need to bring your own mug if you wish to have morning tea.
U3A Benalla and District’s Annual General Meeting will be held at Meet and Mingle on Wednesday March 17th. I would like to thank retiring members Bill Parris and Pat Gardner for the highly valued work they have done on the Committee for a number of years. Positions are now vacant for two members. If you are interested in stepping up and joining the committee, the 2021 Executive/Committee Nomination Form is now available.
