What a trialling time we are all having. I must say I am up one day and down the next. Missing what was my normal life. I wonder if our old normal will ever return.
I have been receiving a Newsletter from U3A Network Victoria each week, so we the Committee are keeping in touch with the Network’s recommendations.
A number of our Convenors are running their Courses by email, we have been having Zoom Meetings and some Courses have started using Zoom. Your Convenor will contact you if this is one of your classes. Of course, this is not available to all.
We may be able to run a future Meet and Mingle as a Zoom meeting. We could listen to a guest speaker using the mute feature, so all we would hear is the speaker.
As we are all missing our families and friends, make use of Technology and be thankful we have it. If you need tech support, I may be able to help, no promises - 0421263071.
Stay Home and Stay Safe.
