Yarra Valley Bus Trip – March 2024

A group of U3A members enjoyed a memorable bus trip in the surrounds of the Yarra Valley, looked after by our trusty driver Phil.

Our first stop was Mont de Lancey Historic Homestead in Wandin North, set in beautiful cottage gardens and surrounds, and steeped in history. Our tour guides Jill and Sue were fountains of knowledge and shared many interesting facts about the homestead itself, the family who lived there and what life might have been like. It was well worth a visit.

We then travelled to the Launching Place Home Hotel where we all enjoyed a delicious lunch with a complimentary drink. The service was excellent and the company was fabulous.

Next we visited Seville Hill Winery, where our host John took us through a tasting of several of his wines, with a cheese platter included. John was clearly an artisan of wine-making, producing some beautiful wines. He shared his knowledge, demonstrated part of his wine-making process and answered all our questions. The surrounding scenery was stunning, making it the perfect end to an enjoyable day.

Christmas Picnic in The Park 2023

The weather was perfect and the Christmas spirit was in abundance as we celebrated Christmas at Tim Neville Arboretum. There was some wonderful singing and ukulele strumming provided by U3A Knox music groups, and several people were the lucky winners in a free raffle. It was a great end to the year.

Fashion Show 2023

Steph, Vicki and Fred from Cliché Clothing did a fantastic job in showcasing their outfits at our 2023 fashion show, held on April 18. Our models (Lyn, Inge, Daphne and Jenny) all looked beautiful and modelled their outfits with style. There were some delicious refreshments and a number of lucky winners in our free raffle, with prizes including chocolates, wine and gift vouchers kindly donated by Cliché Clothing. Below are some photos from the day.

Barefoot Bowls

An enthusiastic group of U3A members had lots of fun trying out barefoot bowling, held at Ferntree Gully Bowling Club in late March. They then enjoyed a tasty lunch in good company.
One of the group said how much she enjoyed the experience of trying something new. She also appreciated the chance to share a meal with other U3A members and make some new friends. 

End of Year Lunch at Kilsyth Club 2021

Our Club Kilsyth lunch in July proved to be so popular that the Events Committee organised another one for our end of year celebration.

Our new President Jan Bottcher drew the names of the lucky winners of our MEGA raffle, with its wonderful prizes.
