U3A has had a strong demand from people wanting to enrol in water-based exercise activities and we currently do not have enough classes to cater for our member’s needs. This is especially true in the Maroochydore, Buderim, Sippy Downs areas. If any member has experience or training in these types of exercise activities or knows of anyone that would be willing to volunteer their time to conduct a class/s then we would be more than happy to hear from you and help get something started.
The Open Day was a great success and HUGE thanks to the army of volunteers who supported the event. There were approximately 450 visitors. Volunteers included 23 working in the administration building, and 53 tutors and 10 volunteers working in the Innovation Centre. About 100 new members signed up during this past week. The assistance and involvement by the University of the Sunshine Coast was vital to the success. Thank you to all who volunteered and our wonderful entertaining Ukulele players. Colin Maddocks
