Learning and friendship at U3A

With a new committee, President Sandra Wilson plans a big start to 2020. Continuing the dedicated work of the committee in 2019 there is the promise of new courses and an injection of new ideas into the club which has been flourishing now for over 25 years in Warwick.

“Each year,” says Sandra, “there are new people coming into Warwick and locals reaching retirement. To attract these people we are running an information stand at the Rose City Shopping Centre on Wednesday 22 January at the foot of the southern end escalator.”

People will be able to talk to members and to pick up information there which includes access to our newly designed website u3awarwick.org.au

U3A Information and Registration for Courses is a “must do”. Morning tea will be available and course tutors will be available to answer questions and take enrolments. Put it in your diary. Friday 24 January at the Williams Hall, Guy Street at 10am.

Tutor Coordinator, Maree Espie is a recent member of the club and now on the committee. “There are 32 courses this year, with 10 new ones are Indonesian, Art, Journals and Writing, Spanish and Craft. The courses range from challenging to purely recreational. There is something for everyone, including coffee and friendship. Popular courses fill quickly on Registration Day.

A full Timetable of Courses is available in the Newsletter which is published in January on the U3A website. Those interested will also find a Membership Application Form to be brought to the orientation day. 2020 Membership has been kept at $30 single and $50 for a couple at the same address. There are no additional payments although a few of the tutors ask for payment, usually for handouts which are photocopied and tea, coffee and biscuits where applicable. Many of the courses are held in the U3A rooms at Tooth Street, Warwick at the highway, Wood Street intersection.
