Chairman’s Chat -
August is generally a quiet time for our U3A with many groups taking a summer break. But there are lots of local events to visit if you want to get out and about, including the Great Glen Wheelbarrow Race and Fête on 1st September.
And of course we have our ‘Open Day’ from 10.00 to 11.30 a.m. on Tuesday 14th August. If you are reading this as a visitor to our Open Day then I hope you see that we have a wide range of interest groups you can join – book groups, history groups, arts and crafts groups, sports, games, music and dancing groups – talk to the people on the stands, take away membership application forms or even join Great Glen U3A today. Nearly all of our groups meet in rooms in Great Glen, either in the Methodist church or the Sports Centre next to the Village Hall. If you are already a member then take this opportunity to look at other groups you might be interested in joining. Later in this newsletter you’ll find an update on the new Walking group, which is something many members have requested.
As I have mentioned previously, there are various committee changes in progress or in the offing and this month I’d like to mention two more. The current holders of the two roles of Newsletter Editor and Webmaster will relinquish these roles next May. As you might imagine both roles require a moderate level of IT competency. If you are interested in either role then you can work alongside the current holders before taking over the roles next year. Contact me or any committee member to find out more. Obviously we would like to keep both our newsletter and website going and this is only possible with members’ involvement.
Finally, back to the Open Day, and a big ‘Thank You’ to all those involved in its organisation both in the planning and on the day itself.
That’s all for now. Let’s all get out as much as possible now the weather has returned to an enjoyable level.
Best wishes to you all
