Two Benalla U3A enrolment days will be held in January.
The first at ‘‘The Hub’’ Cooinda on January 15 and the second at the Seniors Community Building on January 17.
Both will run from 9.30am to 11.30am.
Any enquiries are welcome on enrolment day.
Many U3A members and members of the Senior Citizens attended the official opening of the upgrade to the Senior Citizens Centre late last year.
Federal Member for Indi Cathy McGowan, Benalla Rural City Mayor Don Firth and U3A network president Elsie Mutton spoke at the opening.
In the same week the U3A Singing for Fun group entertained a large audience with their singing.
The three conductors, Faith Hicks, Brian Greed and Margaret Merriman, each conducted a bracket of songs, which were well received by an appreciative audience.
Peter Simpson’s solo act caused much merriment.
The Patchwork group had a number of their quilts on display, which created a lot of interest and comment.
A delicious morning tea was served after the performance.
The U3A Executive and Program Committee finalised the program for 2018 with several new programs are on offer.
These include: ‘‘Recorder’’, ‘‘Exercises for Fun’’, ‘‘Stock and Land’’ and ‘‘Travel Club’’.
Travel Club is proving popular with members, several of whom have already booked on the planned cruise to Kangaroo Island.
iPad for Beginners, Tech Savvy Projects and Tech Savvy Talks will cater for technically minded members, while ‘‘Exercises for Fun’’ are mild exercises to music and fun for all ages.
‘‘Some Moments in Australian History’’ will run in Semester 1 and cover five topics.
With these new programs plus the existing ones, which will again run, some hard decisions might have to be made as to which to choose.
