- By WENDY STEPHENS

INDIGO U3A is getting ready for another exciting year for more than 100 enthusiast­ic members.

People that may be interested in joining Indigo U3A are encouraged to come along to the informatio­n day to find out about all the wide range of interests and activities that are on offer, and they can enrol on Tuesday, January 21, from 10am-1pm, at The Old Railway Station in Harper Avenue, Beechworth.

Frances Baker, secretary of the Indigo U3A, said the day is a great opportunit­y to find out about course offerings in the year ahead, to meet tutors and group leaders and to chat to them about courses.

“The morning will also be a good time to catch up with other members after the summer break, meet new members and take the opportunit­y to enrol,” she said.

Annual subscripti­ons are now due at $30 per annum.

Associate membership remains at $10 per person (an associate member must be a full member of another U3A).

The Summer School Program including the car rally and the performanc­e and recital has been cancelled due to the bushfires, but the tree walk and talk at Mayday Hills, followed by morning tea and a tour of Mayday Hills Art Society, will be going ahead on Wednesday, January 22.

First semester programs include: Gerry Engwerda - Internatio­nal Relations; Michael O’Flaherty - Book Club; Anni Turnbull - Plant-based Health Film; Michael Evans - Conversati­ons; Maureen O’Flaherty - Friday Poets; Jann Stewart - Gardeners Group; Frances Baker and Gail Warren-Smith - Film Group; Mike Bydder - Indigo U3A Gets Active; and Gerri Boland - Be Connected and 4th Thursday Walks.

The calendar on the website at www. indigou3a.net has been updated, and the course booklet is available for viewing and downloadin­g and enrolments are open.

If you know someone who is interested in seeing what Indigo U3A has to offer bring them along.

As always Indigo U3A welcomes your suggestion­s for future topics, and your feedback.
