I hope your Term 2 will be an excellent one. Maria Mead sent us the photo above of her class ‘Drawing and Painting in the Environment’ meeting ‘en plein air’ at the Foote Sanctuary in Buderim. Lynette Kerr is the coordinator for this group, said there is no formal teaching and they share ideas and learn from each other.
Do go on line to look for places in interesting courses, or join a discussion group. ‘Enquiring Minds’ meets on a Tuesday afternoon at 1.45pm at St. Marks in Buderim and they would love some new members to join.
Keep an eye out for new classes – our wonderful yoga teacher Myra Timmerman announced this morning that she plans to run a Zoom Yoga class next term, with a beautiful relaxation session to conclude.
At one of our last sessions, Myra reminded us what a wonderful organization U3A was – but her assistant Doris Cooke quickly piped up “It would be nothing without the tutors” Much applause!
I believe two former prime movers in our U3A, Colin Maddocks and Jim Hales encouraged Jules, the MC for the Jazz and Blues Collective, to run a ‘Jazz Appreciation’ class for us next term, which I am so looking forward to attending!
A simply social Choir?
U3A has a choir of long standing, led by Tutor Kath Jeffers. The choir is always looking for new members, ones who can read music and sing in parts.
There is perhaps a place for a new choir, one consisting of members who would just like to sing socially. Bev Gourlay Schouten is a lovely singer and she has very kindly offered to start up such a group, which might meet at her home on a Tuesday or a Wednesday morning. (Other members who are interested in assisting a designated tutor are Joanna Teazis, our Belly Dancing teacher, and Barry Stewart (pictured right). If you are interested in joining a simply social choir, please give Bev a call on 0439792719.
