The University of the Third Age is a mutual aid self-help movement - a modern community of scholars and artists, catering primarily for people in the Third Age of their lives.

The overall aim of Beaudesert U3A Inc. is to provide the members with both the stimulus of mental and physical activity and the satisfaction of a continuing contribution to society. It will enable them to take up new interests and to extend old ones. It will offer the joy of learning for the sake of learning: it will open up new horizons for them - unrestricted by the requirements of vocation or the desire for qualifications, and it will do so, principally by drawing upon the extensive life experience, skills and energies of the members.

High Tea for Seniors at the Beaudesert Library

Funded by the SRRC, a High Tea was presented today (Tuesday 20th August), for Senior's Week, and U3A members were invited. Sixteen of our members took advantage of the opportunity, and were very impressed with the offerings. Several varieties of teas were available and there were choices of sweet and savory bite sized delicacies.

The hostesses were dressed as characters from Doctor Zeuss books Thing 1 and Thing 2 due to Book Week occurring at the same time.

The tables were beautifully decorated with little teapots and our very own Tina Jones brought along some flowers to set it all off.

All in all a great couple of hours enjoyed by those who were able to go along.

Monthly U3A luncheon at the Aussie Thai restaurant in Beaudesert

The photos below are from today's September social lunch outing at the Aussie Thai restaurant in Beaudesert. 25 members and friends enjoyed a good "value for money " lunch, choosing from both entrees and main meals on an extensive menu.

This restaurant always looks clean and tidy and the staff are well presented and friendly. Service was attentive and the food, by all reports, was very good, and was delivered in a timely fashion. Coconut prawns, crab fried rice and thai duck pancakes all got a good review. Kirtsey Arthy struggled to cope with the size of serving of her crispy chicken and rice!
