Comments from the Chair

Almost ten years ago, in February 2000, 120 people signed up to join a new association for
seniors in the Adelaide Hills. The core organisers had held several preliminary meetings in
late 1999 and had put together an interesting introductory program. U3A Adelaide Hills was
up and running and is still maintaining its forward impetus with new courses each term to
keep our members interested and entertained.
We hope to mark our tenth anniversary with a celebratory event during the year, and
perhaps hear from, in a suitable venue, some of those members who got our association
underway. Many of them are still heavily involved in running courses and have worked hard
over the years to ensure that our U3A moves forward.
Your present committee has been busy putting together next term’s program. We miss Anne
Lewis, Dawn Thorp, and Chris Anders-Tritt from our deliberations. They have given so much
of their time, administrative skills, and organisational expertise to the running of U3A.
Fortunately, they are willing to help with sensible advice when it is sought.
We welcome Carole Jones, Marg Whelan, and Margaret Sarre to the committee. They are
already heavily involved in preparation for the new term and bring fresh thinking into our
discussions.
And a very big ‘Thank You’ is due to all those Course Organisers, Course Presenters, and
Tutors who are working overtime to get this program out to our members so we can all plan
for the year ahead.
A Happy Christmas and New Year to all our members. Enjoy Term 1!

       We were very sorry to hear of the death of Dr Peter Brummitt in December.
     Peter was a long time member who had served on the Management Committee.
                    Our sympathies go to Barbara and to their family.
