Melville AGM and Christmas Luncheon

To celebrate the closing of a challenging year, the Melville and Districts’ Region of U3A held their Annual General Meeting and Christmas luncheon on Friday December 4 at Kadidjiny Park Hall. Two talented members of our region provided choral entertainment and some of our members even found their voices. It was a delightful celebration and provided an opportunity for members of our different groups to gather together.   Glenys Chidlow (retiring Publicity Officer, U3A Melville & Districts Region)

Melville events in November

November has been an extremely busy month for our region. During Senior’s Week we participated in the Melville City Council’s Man Cave Mini Expo at the Blue Gum Community Centre, the Have a Go Day at Burswood Park, and we enjoyed a Thank You lunch with our valued Group Leaders and helpers at the Bentley Pines Training Restaurant.  Twenty new U3A members have just completed the annual Mah Jong for Beginners’ Course. Over 12 weeks the enthusiastic beginners learnt how to Pung, Kong and play a Goulash. They have now graduated and will hopefully continue to play at either or both of our Tuesday and Friday Mah Jong groups. We are preparing for our Annual General Meeting early in December, which will be combined with a Christmas luncheon and entertainment. The luncheon will be a celebration of a remarkable year.

Bingo Afternoon

Members from the U3A Melville and Districts region recently enjoyed a Bingo afternoon with a difference. There was a variation to the traditional cards of numbers, with some squares containing helpful COVID isolation hints. We could Walk the Dog, Bake Bread, Call a friend, Wash our Hands or Wear a Mask. The Boredom Busting Bingo afternoon was kindly organised by Kathy and Laurie Money and prizes included crossword puzzle books, chocolates, hand sanitiser and that precious COVID commodity – toilet paper.               Glenys Chidlow – U3A Melville Publicity Officer
