Chairman’s Chat -
Well it’s April and so the start of a new year at Great Glen U3A. Thanks to all members who have renewed their membership promptly and a polite nudge to those who have still to do so.
In the next few months we have the AGM in May which will include musical contributions from the Ukulele Group and some short films from Toni Smith. I’m pleased to say that we have two new volunteers for committee posts and I trust you will support their election at the AGM. Then in August we shall have our Open Day. Last year we attended the Wheelbarrow Race instead but we are back on home ground this year. The main aims of the open day are to increase awareness of U3A locally and also to allow members to consider additional groups they might like to try out. And, of course, around these particular events we shall have a range of interesting speakers at our regular monthly meetings.
In this month’s newsletter you will see details of a Learn Something New session on keeping fraudsters and scammers at bay; sadly, this is something we all need to be aware of these days. If this is of interest please get your name on the list.
Unfortunately, our Singing for Fun Group is suspended at the moment as we are in need of a new pianist. If you think you could do this then please contact myself or Catriona Scott.
And as we head for the warmer weather, is there anyone who could lead some gentle rambles in our local countryside? It’s some years since we had a walking group, so perhaps it’s time to have another go. Please contact me.
Make the most of your U3A membership. There’s lots to do so try out a new group this month.
