Great news! U3A Benalla has been awarded a Community Engagement Grant worth $1,500 by the Good Things Foundation which runs the ‘Be Connected’ digital literacy program. The teaching of digital literacy is important for people who have had little or no contact with computers during their working lives. It can help connect family and friends through Emails and the sending of photos. Increasingly we are finding that business wants to communicate and send accounts also by Email. To celebrate our up-coming Tech Savvy Beginners 'Be Connected' course and involvement with ‘Be Connected’ program we are holding a sausage sizzle luncheon at 12 noon on Wednesday 3 July.

Council have now installed Solar Panels on the building and will update the lighting at the building in the next few weeks. When I know the dates I will let the Convenors it may impact upon know.
The Program Committee have finalised the Semester 2 timetable, which was sent with the newsletter & included on the Join page.
I understand there have been a few complaints about members not hearing their convenors. Any Convenor who would like to use the microphone and needs a run through on its use can ring me 0412 263 071
