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
Glen Wall was unable to attend due to having a nasty fall which required stitches on his head. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope all is well. The meeting was short and sweet, only taking up half an hour. Elaine informed the members of upcoming bus tours, which was also on the monthly printout. New classes are also being introduced in the fourth term; Candle making, Origami and Make a calendar for 2019. If anyone is interested, please see Judy Cleary.
Finally, we were entertained by the choir who sang 5 songs. We are very proud of this group in what they have achieved. They entertain other groups within our community and received an encore applause at the Chinese Moon Festival last week. Well done.
Time Capsule 2040
At the moment, we are looking for people to submit an art piece of some sort, that we can put into our time capsule. Due to archive reasons, we cannot put the physical object into the box, but we will take a photograph of it and put it into the box. We will also keep the physical copy in the basement, which will be up for viewing in 2040.
We are hoping that some U3A members are interested in submitting a piece. We are not looking for photographs, unfortunately, due to photo consent reasons, but are happy to receive any type of art including poem, drawing, painting, illustration etc.

Drop In Room
The “Drop in Room” (Room number 108) has been set up. Members can call in, have a chat to others, read a book, share interests when they have nothing to do at home and looking for company. It can be used as a venue for casual sharing of interests. The room is furnished with comfortable chairs, tables and book shelves for a book, jig saw and puzzle exchange program and is available for use Monday to Friday 9:30 am Monday to Friday. A jigsaw has already been started and members can come and have their input into the puzzle. This will only be available from Monday to Friday as young children enjoy this venue at the weekends and cannot guarantee that the jigsaw will be kept in place. Feel free to add in your contribution.
Please note – We now have 2 venues for our administration and both will be known as “campus”. (We are a University after all)
