2020 – AGM

13 March 2019 – AGM and 30 Year Anniversary Celebratory Lunch

The Annual General Meeting and 30th Anniversary Celebratory Lunch were held on Wednesday 13 March 2019 at the Long Reef Golf Club.  As usual the Club came up trumps with a wonderful meal and excellent service.

President Rosemary McCulloch welcomed close to 100 members with a special welcome to Barbara Boston, the current Sydney U3A President, and Ruth Buchanan, immediate Past President of the Northern Beaches region.  In her address the President noted the many new initiatives over the last year with the introduction of the Strolling Group, Opera and Lunch on alternate Sundays, a Craft Group, the appointment of a Welfare Officer and the Third Age Rock Orchestra to name a few.  With the exception of Mike Williams, Publicity Officer, the committee was re-elected for the 2019 year and Ruth Buchanan noted her thanks for their sterling work during the past year.

The special guest speaker was Detective Superintendent Deborah Wallace, Commander of the State Crime Command Criminal Groups Squad, NSW Police Force, whose humorous talk was very much enjoyed by all.

Special thanks must be given to Gaye Pringle for her excellent organisation of the event.

14 March 2018 – AGM

This year’s AGM was held on Wednesday 14 March at the Narrabeen Baptist Church.

President Rosemary thanked the outgoing committee and assistants for their excellent work during the year. She emphasised they are the unsung heroes for all the work they do quietly in the background.  Course Leaders and Course
Secretaries rated special thanks as without them we would have no U3A.

The outgoing committee was thanked for it’s marvellous work over the previous year and the 2018/19 committee elected. A special welcome was extended to a new team member, Mike Williams.  We wish them well in their continuing work for Northern Beaches U3A.

Refreshments were served following the meeting and several members enjoyed the ‘Bollywood’ dance entertainment.
