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.
