President’s Message


Happy New Year to all members of Forster/Tuncurry U3A – we live in hope that this new year proves to be happier and less stressful than the previous one! We intend to commence our classes for Term 1 on Monday 8th February and the program is organised in the same way as Terms 3 and 4 of 2020.

At the time of writing, enrolment mornings and Welcome Morning Tea are planned with restriction on the numbers attending. Refer to page 2 of this Newsletter for details.  The membership fee for the year 2021 has been set at $60 per person.  Our AGM was finally held on 6th October 2020 and your new Committee looks almost identical to the previous one.  We have a new Newsletter Editor, Shirley R, following the resignation of Annie M, and we have an additional Committee member, Barb L, to welcome to their respective roles.  Thank you to all ongoing Committee members – Graeme, Noline, Ann, Trish, Judy and Chris for their continuing commitment to the administration of our U3A.

A huge thank you also to all who have volunteered to be Tutors, Class Assistants and Techs this year.  It can be challenging to participate actively in this way –, but so worth it.  Course Co-ordinator Trish has prepared another interesting and diverse program, and our usual popular regular groups will continue.  Social activities are also on the agenda.  I encourage all our members to come along as often as possible and enjoy the variety of presentations and events on offer.  Looking forward to seeing you soon at U3A.
