Key dates for 2017

Message from U3A ACT President

At its February meeting, the committee decided to retire the Christmas Party event as the numbers attending have been dropping despite the overall growth of U3A.

The last event of the year will now be the AGM and its accompanying afternoon tea on Wednesday 22 November 2017. I have written to all performing groups, art groups and the camera club to open a discussion on ways in which we can keep in touch with them perhaps at a less busy time of year.

Comments and ideas from all members are welcome.
