The morning get-together in the Gardens was most enjoyable. We plan to continue these social gatherings, with the next gathering to be held on Tuesday November 10th from 10 – 11.30, again in the Benalla Gardens near the Art Gallery.
We are continuing to work with Council and are looking at possible venues for sessions next year while the air conditioning is being renovated at the Seniors Community Centre.
With changes in Covid-19 rules happening all the time, it has been hard to plan additional sessions with any degree of certainty. Convenors are encouraged to organise end of year meetings/celebrations for their groups in line with social distancing regulations.
My thanks go to all our Convenors for being positive and keeping in touch with the Committee and Members. To the Convenors who have been able to run their groups - Congratulations.
The Committee will be meeting soon to discuss next year’s program. We hope in the New Year we can once again offer our Members the wonderful selection of courses U3A Benalla is known for.
A final opportunity for members to get together under the trees near the Art Gallery before Christmas! The activity will commence at 10.0am until 11.30am. As we have done previously, bring your own chair, beverages and morning tea. We will be able to meet without masks as long as we maintain our social distance.
