Chairman’s Chat - May 2019


Hello everyone


As I said last month I am now at the end of my stint as chairman and will formally hand over after the AGM.


I believe U3A is a very important organisation for people like us.  Aspects of aging are constantly in the news these days, but a consistent message is that keeping active physically and mentally is a key part of an enjoyable retirement. U3As provide many opportunities for continuing self-development and we should take advantage of these as far as we are able.


But all U3As rely on volunteers and at Great Glen we have an excellent set of group leaders who work hard to provide the facilities we enjoy.  So many thanks to all of them.  And those who are not group leaders but help with the running or administration of groups, thank you too.  And behind the scenes, there are helpers of all kinds – taking registers, looking after tea & coffee supplies, transporting equipment, arranging outings, and much more.  We can easily take these things for granted but we all should be grateful to those who choose to get involved. Thank you all.


I’m sure that our U3A will continue to develop and change.  Groups may come and go as a reflection of the interests of members.  Please play your part in making Great Glen U3A a welcoming and enjoyable experience for all our members.


Thank you for having me as your chairman for the last two years.


Best wishes to you all.
