If you are over 50 and looking for people who share your interests, or you would like to share your passion with others, then U3A Batemans Bay may be the group for you. Our 2022 program includes a range of Recreational and Physical Activities, Science and General Interest topics, as well as History and Literary lectures and workshops.
“There is something for everyone” .
This year, despite the challenges of covid, we still managed to run a small program for our members which included yoga and exercise classes, book and discussion groups, sewing and dancing.
In 2022 we are working to expand our courses in the south of the shire. The program includes a number of courses in Moruya such as a Creative Writing class to be held at the library. Scottish Country Dancing will once again be held fortnightly at the Memorial Hall and there is a discussion group which meets weekly at the golf club, as well as an exercise group which also meets weekly at the library.
In addition, we have a number of Wine Appreciation Groups which meet in various members’ homes that are looking for new members. Please check our program on the U3A website U3A Batemans Bay – Stimulating activities for over 50s (u3anet.org.au) and contact the tutors if you are interested and want to find out more.
We are holding a Registration day for enrolling in classes on Friday the 21st of January at the Soldiers Club from 10:30 to 12:30.
This is the day members can meet and talk to tutors and other members about the courses and groups. Enrolment on the day gives a member priority but members can use the online facility from Monday 24th providing spaces are available.
Our organisation is unique. It is totally managed and run by volunteers for the benefit of members of the Eurobodalla Community. Our tutors are also volunteers.
Together we provide a program of over 40 courses and groups for our 500 plus members. To be a tutor you just need to want to share your knowledge or skills with others - perhaps you immigrated from another country and would like to share your language and culture then, trust me, there are others who will gladly join you. We have two course coordinators who will provide guidance, publicity and a venue so that you can get started. Our tutor community is an experienced and welcoming group who gain a great deal of satisfaction from their contribution.
“Music, instrumental or singing, is another passion that brings people together”
U3A provides a network so that members of our Eurobodalla community can maintain their physical and mental health as well as their general well-being.
If you are interested in joining please contact Maureen O’Brien, our membership coordinator at 0419 586 072 or email: email@example.com
