Our guest speaker for Meet and Mingle in August will be Lucy Mitchell-Long from Benalla Health. Lucy will speak on Health Literacy which is a subject we can all probably do with some help on.
U3A Benalla are hosting the North East Regional U3A meeting on 6 September 2022 by Zoom, which will alleviate the need for participants to travel long distances. Any positive ideas to come from this meeting will be relayed to members via the Newsletter and Website.
In the last month I have updated the COVID-19 plan for U3A Benalla which is available on the Website. Whilst the State Government has cut many mandates, we are still advocating the use of masks inside if that is what our members feel comfortable with, given the current large number of COVID-19 cases in Victoria.
Claire Rudolph has only had a small number of members interested in “The Sky’s the Limit” at the moment, so will delay starting that course until 2023.
Finally, U3A Benalla groups can continue into the second week of December if that is what the Convenor and group chooses to do. It is entirely up to the Convenor and group when they finish the year.
