Christmas feast for U3A

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Deniliquin U3A hosted its Christmas Party on Wednesday with a light lunch at the Intereach Neighbourhood Centre.

About 20 members attended to celebrate what is being hailed as a successful year for the U3A.

President Alison Wilson said among the highlights were the two grants secured.

‘‘We first received $455 to help get our brochure up and running, which is very close from being released,’’ she said.

‘‘The second grant was for Seniors Week in February for $1500.

‘‘People are becoming more aware of our courses, including history, Scattergories, discussion group, arm chair travel and tai chi.

‘‘Our numbers have risen from about 70 to 82, which is fantastic.’’
