Welcome to Whittlesea U3A
Professor Bear meets Mr. Whittles
I have had so many exciting days with my U3A friends but today may be the best. Today I am being introduced to Mr Whittles. “Who is Mr Whittles” you ask? Well I am not sure myself! We are meeting at the Whittlesea Library in the township of Whittlesea. This new U3A class, Discussion over Coffee for members in the North, has asked me to attend, so of course I said yes and I am off to Whittlesea. This is my first ride to the Whittlesea town-ship and I was astonished to find it was forty kilometres from the Central Business District of Melbourne. Want to know know more?

Professor Bear in Geelong in May
One of our members passed away yesterday 13th March, Theresa Schembri-Peisley.
Theresa was in the knitters’ group and did a lot of knitting for charity. She will be sadly missed.
The president, Glen Wall, got the March morning tea meeting underway with a raffle, which was organised by the Knitters’ Group. The winner of the raffle was Flo Majewski. Congratulations. More information on the Knitters Group and quilt, click here. As the classes have progressed into Peter Lalor Campus, Glen reinforced the office staff, who attended the meeting. Signage has been installed also at the Campus, but other improvements are still ongoing. The kitchen is now functional, the computers have arrived and Telstra communication package is scheduled for activation this month. Phone calls to the office will be answered by the office Support Team when that has been installed and messages will be returned by them at the earliest convenient time. Arrangements have been completed with the school, council, and U3A collaboration partners to complete planning work; toilet facilities and upgrade of the car park. Our speaker today was Gwen Rosengren. Over the years, Gwen has supported thousands across Victoria in managing hearing loss. She has acted as BHA executive officer and team leader for its hearing advisors and participated in many partnership programs. Jodie Lang who has a hearing problem raised the issue with Glen who then contacted Gwen for her assistance. As a former teacher of deaf children and in more recent times Hearing Advisor working with adults with hearing loss, families, and friends, she has a lot of experience and knowledge.
