Welcome to 2020!
Benalla U3A’s Summer School Program is now in its third year! In December 2017 Dorothy Webber piloted a summer program with a session dedicated to Trivial Pursuit, and a second session ‘Morning Memories’ where stories and photographs were shared. In January 2019 the first ‘Tech Savvy Be Connected’ summer school program was offered by Jenny Sawyer and Margaret Jenkins. In 2020, three summer school activities are being held in the U3A meeting room over the January break:
Tech Savvy Be Connected Tuesday 7, 14 and 21 January – 10am-11am
Whether or not you attended previous sessions last semester, you are welcome to bring your portable devices to our summer school to extend your computing know-ledge & skills. Contact: Margaret Jenkins 5762 6944 Jenny Sawyer 0409 545 182
