Local Leaders | U3A: Networking proves inspiring

A very busy week last week ended an equally busy U3A Term 1.

Our two-day Grey Mardi Gras and Expo to celebrate the NSW Seniors Festival was held on the Monday and Tuesday, followed by the 2018 NSW Network's three-day conference and AGM in Canberra from the Wednesday.

Being members of the network, we sent two delegates to the the conference, which is a great place to meet up with delegates from U3As all over the state, the ACT, WA and Tasmania.

As well as some top guest speakers, there were also a number of workshops and between them our delegates attended them all and have brought home some great ideas for new classes.

On Monday, April 30 our second term will start and, due to the popularity of our Walk 4 Health groups, we will be starting another one on Wednesdays.

This will bring our walking groups to five, including our Ramblers, which is for the more experienced bush walkers.

Auslan (Signing for the Deaf), which our members have been requesting for a long time, will be another of the new classes planned, and most of our classes from Term 1 will be continuing.

We will be having an information stall at the Collector's Pumpkin Festival on May 6 where we are hoping to start another Argyle Singers Choir to join our already established ones at Goulburn and Gunning.
