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.

U3A June Luncheon Held at the 'Railway Hotel Beaudesert'

Approximately 50 U3A members attended the Danny Elliott concert on Friday 14 June at The Centre. The audience was treated to an amazing musical morning with Danny showing his talents by playing at least 10 of the 16 instruments he has mastered. He also sang solo or with his wife Sharna Le-Grand, and then to top it off, treated us to some clever tap dancing. An enjoyable morning and 44 of our members then went to lunch at the Railway Hotel.

While Di originally booked for 36 for the lunch, it was increased to 40 to cater for any last minute attendees.
With 44 people showing up, it meant that some had to sit at tables in the general dining area rather than downstairs with the main group.

Meals were available from $12.50 on the specials, and there was also a big main menu to choose from. Upon showing a seniors’ card, a 20 percent discount was applied to meals, so the pricing was very reasonable. It took quite a while to get the orders placed as there was a line up at the one order point, but the meals came out of the kitchen in a reasonable progression.

There was only one complaint that I heard, and that was the hummus on the hummus salad dish was sliced too thinly. I had the creamy garlic prawns, served with jasmine rice and a side salad, delicious….

Cheers Andy Fechner
