Friday 9/10 saw a number of us staffing an Information Table outside the newsagents hoping to recruit some new members. As the Politics tutor I was amused by the number of people who said the last thing they would do was join a Politics discussion but then held forth on the topic!
The Program Committee met to review new courses and set a timetable for 2016 classes. We still have some work ahead finalising details and the November newsletter will contain course outlines, timetables, enrolment forms and dates/venues for Enrolment days. New classes will include:- Collectors, Bird Watching, Play Reading and a couple of others are in the offering for Semester 2. In addition Railways and Brain Games are returning from hibernation for new sessions along with most of the existing classes.
I want to congratulate Graham Mitchell and his Investment Group who have decided to retire after a run of over 20 years! When I last checked the Age Finance competition, the group were in 3rd place and well positioned to give the leaders a fright in the few months remaining.
Please remember to book a place for the Christmas Luncheon to be held in Mansfield on 25th November. Find the form in the Newsletter.
Finally I want to thank John Avery for his long stint as our Network Representative at the Melbourne meetings. John has played a significant role as our representative and we hope we can find someone to replace him; any offers?
