Membership and enrolment day soon.PAT COFFEY January 17, 2013 4:06am
Seymour and District U3A will hold its membership and enrolment day at the Salvation Army Hall, Victoria St, on Tuesday from 10
Membership is $30 single, $50 double with most courses free and is open to anyone who is retired, working part time, or is available for the courses offered.
U3A is a place to learn something new or refresh subjects from the past. All tutors are volunteers and there are no exams. While classes are structured to the needs of members, it is the member’s responsibility to ensure they are physically able to participate.
This year there are 25 courses including five new courses plus a couple of extra computer classes.
How about trying the ancient skill of Bobbin Lace Making with Maree Langley or GeoCaching with Heather Baetge, a wonderful outdoor treasure hunt using a GPS which helps close in on the cache which might be in a tree trunk or up a tree?
Perhaps you may like to learn the history of Seymour’s radio with Ted Gray, and receive training in radio presentation? You can learn to write poetry with Len Fidler or join any of the continuing groups of Literature, Language, Art, Singing, Current Affairs and Mahjong.
Classes will begin on February 1 and, thanks to Mitchell Shire councillors making the ex-Seymour Shire offices available for community use until renovations are completed on a building at Chittick Park, most classes will be held at the venue at 28 High St.
Current and new members are invited to discuss the various courses with the tutors on enrolment day, or if unavailable, call into the U3A office at the rear of the Old Courthouse any Monday between 10
