Welcome to Frankston U3A for 2020
At this stage, and subject to government guidelines, we are intending to return to Karingal Place at the beginning of February 2021. Zoom classes will continue but we hope to include some face to face classes of limited size and of shorter duration. We will keep you informed as details become available.
Thank you for standing by us during this extremely difficult year. 2020 will not be missed by most of us and we look forward to a brighter, safer future
Just because we aren’t able to be in the office doesn’t mean we’ve stopped working on programs and strategies for U3A Frankston and all of our dedicated members.
We currently have two grant submissions under way for programs that will be fun and inclusive to those members who whish to take part. These will be conducted once funding is approved and are designed to be done from home. Notice will be put out through all our channels to let you know when the grant has been approved and registration can be made.
Program 1. Online Trivia Quiz. Held on 23rd October.
Program 2. Pen Pal. Are you missing connecting with your fellow students at U3A? In this time of isolation and loss of U3A friendships and social networks and with still a lot of members who don’t use anything technical in the way of computers, iPads or smartphones, we thought it might be a nice idea to run a program that all members can be involved in. We would love you to join our Pen Pal program when it is up and running. It will enable you to meet some new people, stay connected with your community, give you a specific purpose a few days a week, and just have some good old fashioned fun of writing letters. U3A will provide all the necessary stationery and stamps; we will also include some suggested topics of conversation and some uplifting inserts to help make it more engaging.
