U3A Writing: U3A Delight

Monica Duckering delights in U3A activities.

There’s something for everyone at U3A, thanks to SunniTAFE who make rooms available to us. Other clubs that I’ve experienced have not been so lucky. “Rocky River Riters” in S.A. met in a bare village hall. The Neighbourhood House in Chelsea held classes in various small rooms. In Bristol, U.K. , the Old Folk House was used for activities like Creative Writing (mainly poetry), and Social Dancing.

The years I’ve spent with the Creative Writing Circle at our U3A have been stimulating and, above all, most enjoyable. Play Reading sessions are fun, too. Then there’s the poetry group where we choose favourite poems to read aloud to one another. Simple, but most enjoyable. I like to relax at the Opera afternoons. And I’ve enjoyed learning to crochet with a very patient teacher. I attend talks and films in the Theatre whenever I can find time. In addition to all those activities, I was happy to show other members how to do pressed flowers craft and make bark pictures, and to demonstrate No Dig Gardening, and to give a talk on my experiences in the N.T.

We are so lucky to have such a wonderful venue, volunteer tutors and congenial company. The Social Days bring is all together once a year too, thanks to our hardworking committee men and women.
