What a great morning everyone had at Meet and Mingle on Wednesday 15th November. Thank you to the Recorder Group, the Ukulele Group and the Singing for Fun Group for supplying such varied musical entertainment, and also to the members of the Patchwork and Craft Group who brought along some of the work they have done during 2023.
It was so good to see about 60 members of U3A and their friends in the audience. In total I think there were over 100 in the auditorium for the morning.
Congratulations to Bev Lee on her Life Membership of U3A Benalla which was presented at Meet and Mingle. Bev has run our website for the past ten years,..., initiated our Tech Savvy Seniors programs in 2015, developed and convened our Family Research program, and has convened the memoir writing group for the past 10 years. A member of the Program Committee and mentor to new Convenors, Bev has produced our Convenors A-Z each year and introduced the Course Proposal form often used with new Convenors to outline the course they are going to run. So, congratulations Bev. You thoroughly deserve the Life Membership.
There are two courses not proceeding in 2024, and I would like to thank John Barry for his unique course “In the Lap of the Gods” and Meg Dillon for her “Jane Austen Book Group”. Thank you both for the effort and knowledge you have put into running these fascinating courses.
