New Year’s message from Lilia
Dear U3A Members
As we say goodbye to 2021 and entering this new year, I am really looking forward to working with you all.
It was wonderful to see so many members virtually at the AGM meeting in November, and to be told that many of our groups were still actively meeting and communicating with each other.
For those who have not been able to communicate or meet, I do hope that we will be able to have face to face meetings resumed by summer this year.
The committee continues to have monthly virtual meetings, and will continue to work as hard as we can, to maintain the success of our brilliant local U3A, during these unprecedented times.
In the meantime, for those who can, please tune into the monthly Open Zoom meetings as we continue to have interesting speakers and you can have an opportunity to talk to committee members with any issues that you may want to raise.
Our website continues to keep you informed of all updated information and activities.
Unfortunately, some of our members, who are not technology orientated are losing out, because we have no newsletter, or any other way of communicating with them.
We need to ensure that all our members are involved and I am appealing to anyone who feels that they could help in facilitating this, to contact me as soon as possible so that we all can continue in “Sharing, Caring, Learning and Laughing” for all our members.
I wish you all a Healthy and Happy New Year and Let’s make sure our U3A continues to develop and thrive in 2021.
Very best wishes to you all
Chairman Buckingham & District U3A
