'What a great finish to our year!" Singing for Fun
U3A Benalla has had a great start to 2023! What a wonderful vibe there was at Enrolment Day in early January. A big thank you to all Convenors for spending time with the new members, explaining about your wonderful groups.
Our organisation relies on the guidance of the Convenor for each group, and the Committee really appreciate the effort you put into Enrolment Day as well as the preparation you do for each meeting of your course.
My thanks also to the Committee for setting up the tables and chairs for Enrolment morning, and for helping in many and varied ways throughout the morning.
Our very efficient Membership Secretary, Len Jeffers, told me yesterday that we had 313 members enrolled on the 24th January. That is a fantastic number of members enrolled before the groups commence. A big welcome to the 41 new members who have joined U3A Benalla for the first time. We hope that all members enjoy the groups that you have put your names down for.
We are really pleased that there are 48 courses available this year. Outdoor courses such as bushwalking and bird watching are very popular, as are garden appreciation and wine appreciation. Indoor groups such as Exercises for Fun also have had great enrolments. In the past two weeks I have heard lots of very positive comments about the courses available, many along the lines that “it is hard to choose what to do as they all seem so interesting”. Thank you for all those comments.
We encourage the wearing of name badges to all meetings. This allows new members to get to know members who have been there before. If for any reason you cannot attend a group which you have put your name down for, it is courtesy to let your Convenor know by a phone call or a text that you cannot be there....
