Chairman’s Chat - July 2019


Hello everyone


As many of our Groups take a break over the summer recess, your Committee has been putting further work into plans for the next Open Day.  As previously explained this event takes place on Tuesday 03 September this year, from 10.00 to 12.00 noon.  Now that the dust has settled after the flurry of renewals for 2019/2020 it is clear that, as every year, we need to recruit quite a number of new members just to stand still.  The Open Day is one of our prime opportunities to do that. This year we shall be showcasing the great things we do at three locations: the Village Hall, the Sports Hall and the Methodist Church Hall. You can all play your part by attending and bringing along friends, neighbours and acquaintances who will receive a cordial welcome.  Please put the date in your diaries now.


I am sure that we need also to find new ways to promote Great Glen U3A, because as we all know ‘the times they are a-changing’.  I should be very interested to hear from anyone with social media skills and experience who might have ideas about how we might best go about this.  If you might be that person, please contact me.


My best wishes both to those embarking on holidays – perhaps you may care to share some of your experiences with us via the newsletter? – and those, like Patricia and me, who for July remain at home.  And a reminder to the latter: there is the usual monthly meeting in July, at which I hope we shall see a better attendance than at the last two meetings, no meeting in August, and then the usual meetings from September onwards – see this newsletter for details.
