The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

ECHUCA U3A re­cently cel­e­brated 30 years of pro­vid­ing fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion to older peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

Also known as the Univer­sity of the Third Age, U3A em­pow­ers peo­ple in ac­tive re­tire­ment to pur­sue a wide range of in­ter­ests, while also en­hanc­ing self-im­age and well-be­ing.

Es­tab­lished in 1988, Echuca was one of the first groups in Vic­to­ria.

Its cur­rent pro­gram in­cludes guest speak­ers, ed­u­ca­tional field trips, lunch group and games morn­ings.

The U3A move­ment aims to pro- vide low-cost ed­u­ca­tional, creative and leisurely op­por­tu­ni­ties in a friendly en­vi­ron­ment for re­tired or semire­tired mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

Echuca U3A meets on the first and third Wed­nes­day of each month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at the Cam­paspe Li­brary meet­ing room.

New mem­bers are al­ways welcome and no qual­i­fi­ca­tions are re­quired and there are no ex­am­i­na­tions or cer­tifi­cates.

For in­for­ma­tion call Bev on 5480 2676.

HAPPY BIRTH­DAY TO US: Pat Ben­nett, Jim Howie and Alma Reynolds were pic­tured cut­ting the cake to help cel­e­brate the Univer­sity of the Third Age’s 30-year mile­stone of work­ing with older peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.
