Seniors Festivals Upper North

The Upper North Committee was very busy at the beginning of the year. Apart from organising the Showcase, they also represented U3A at two events for the 2020 Seniors Festival

 Seniors Information Day run by Ku-ring-gai Council

Committee members Marilyn Pryor, Heather Lakiss, Vicki Davies, Marjorie Perry and Claudine Parr did a wonderful job at the U3A Upper North information stand at Turramurra Uniting Church on the 17th April for Kur-ring-gai Council’s Seniors Information Day.

The event lasted four hours and stalls from many groups and organisations who provide services for seniors were spread over three rooms. Groups included Meals on Wheels, Sydney Wildlife Rescue, Computer Pals, Ku-ring-gai Council, Hornsby Council, Probus, Easy Care Gardening (and many more). The information day was a great success. Morning tea and lunch was served.

The U3A group answered questions and gave out brochures to over 50 people who stopped at the desk.

Seniors week celebration day run by Hornsby Council

The Hornsby RSL was the venue for Hornsby Council’s celebration day on the 20th February. Hundreds of seniors turned up to a morning of entertainment and information sharing. It was another successful day.

U3A held an information stand which was visited by at least 100 people eager to know more about the courses on offer.
