Term 1 at Bingara U3A

February 13, 2019

Bingara U3A has just published its list of activities for the first term of 2019. “We have some interesting and fun events for the start of this year” said President, Linda McDouall but “firstly thanks to all of you who attended U3A activities in Bingara last year. We are proud to say that we now have 25 members which is very good for a start-up in a small town.”

“Our first event” continued Linda, “will be next Sunday. The Mowers workshop presented by Geoff Leech last year proved to be very informative, so we have asked Geoff back, this time to do a workshop on minor but irritating plumbing problems.

“Other courses will include a general introduction to First Aid and CPR. Although this course is presented by a qualified person, it does not include any qualification. It will run over two weeknights.

There will also be a creative writing workshop for anyone who is interested in presenting stories from their family history research or writing their personal stories. This workshop concentrates on aspects of writing the stories rather than researching them.

Armchair Travel will be held in March. David and Dimity McMurtrie travelled on a boat round Europe and other parts of the world and Dimity will share some of her travels with members. “We are hoping that Armchair Travel will become a regular event every couple of months.” said Linda. “It is an activity which is very popular in other U3As around Australia.

We are also repeating Barb Leech’s Cards and Tags Workshop in April” Linda continued, “and of course we still run Pilates every Saturday morning and Balance and Bones every Monday.”

Bingara U3A asks that if you are interested in attending any of these activities, please RSVP to bingarau3a@gmail.com. It is really important for them to know how many people will be coming. Also, if you are not already a member of Bingara U3A, please pick up a membership form from the Visitor Information Centre. It only costs $20 for the year.
