Christmas Party 2019
Question: How to ensure a quorum at a regional U3A AGM?
Solution: Provide a free Christmas luncheon and gently coerce the committee members (and extras) to provide entertainment!
This proved to be a very popular event despite very warm weather. The committee performed a “fractured” nativity play that was “sung” to various nursery rhymes. Special thanks to Kathy Money for masterminding this event. Her roles included catering manager, playwright, theatre director and narrator.
The U3A Melville committee aims to continue provide more exciting events for all of our members in 2020.
Crazy Whist Afternoon
Many thanks to Kathy, Laurie and family for organising our first crazy whilst afternoon on 27 October. This event was open to U3A members, family and friends. Thirty-two people attended with an age range of 8 – 80. This was a “progressive” activity so we played with different people for every game – a great way to meet everyone. Of course, no U3A event in our region is complete without a sumptuous afternoon tea.
Melville Annual Winter Lunch – 31st of July 2019
Melville & Districts Region have hosted an annual winter lunch for members for a number of years. They are hugely popular and tickets sell out quickly. Kathy Money and her band of helpers work hard to make sure this event is lot of fun. This year (President) Denise Beer and (General Secretary) Christine Oliver were invited guests.
Melville Quiz on 7th June 2019
Despite very stormy weather, thirty members came along and enjoyed our quiz afternoon. Kathy prepared and asked the questions, some of which were quite challenging! The photo shows the winners.
