Vin­tage pa­rade

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

U3A Ararat will take peo­ple on a walk down mem­ory lane next month with a fash­ion pa­rade show­cas­ing vin­tage, clas­sic and rare out­fits of the past.

‘Threads’ will be at Ararat Town Hall on Oc­to­ber 9, start­ing at 2pm and ex­hibit­ing about 60 gar­ments mod­elled by Mar­ian Col­lege stu­dents.

The pa­rade will also in­clude a dis­play of the Lady Grimwade Col­lec­tion from Ararat Gallery’s per­ma­nent col­lec­tion and an af­ter­noon tea.

U3A Ararat pres­i­dent Pat Mcaloon said the group of­fered more than 150 ma­ture age peo­ple a va­ri­ety of learn­ing cour­ses such as phi­los­o­phy, med­i­ta­tion, craft and cook­ing.

He said he was de­lighted with the con­cept of Threads be­cause it al­lowed mem­bers to use their skills and cre­ate an ex­hibit for their com­mu­nity.

“Threads is pro­vid­ing scope for mem­bers with plan­ning, networking, or­gan­i­sa­tional and artis­tic skills to bring to­gether a great dis­play,” he said.

“Some of the out­fits and leisure wear were worn when we were young, and some from our grand­mother’s and even our great grand­mother’s eras.”

Peo­ple can book $20 tick­ets, in­clud­ing af­ter­noon tea, at www.try­book­ing.com or by call­ing Anne on 0431 133 863.
