WHAT IS A U3A
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.

OUR AIMS
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 October Luncheon at the 'Thai on Beaudesert' Restaurant

We had 23 members along who really enjoyed some nice food. The staff were kept really busy coping with our group along with several other tables. An extensive menu with something for everyone, and only one "lost order" hiccup. The restaurant seats around 30 maximum in an "L" shape and is not licensed for alcohol. Plenty of car parking nearby and good toilet facilities available.

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

Hello fellow bugs,
After waiting for a few stragglers, we left Beaudesert at 7-20am with George driving the bus. We picked up more people at Jimboomba and then we were on our way.

We were treated to some interesting commentary from our now regular driver George during the Tour. We had morning tea at Picnic Point, and then drove on to the Reserve Champion garden and another garden before lunch. After a leisurely lunch at Laurel Bank Park, we then moved on to a much larger garden at 17 Ward street Highfields, which was crowned the Grand Champion Garden. Next, came the beautiful native garden in Smythe Drive where you could also purchase plants. We finished the tour at Spring Bluff Railway Station where Station staff had created some very pretty flower boarders right alongside the Railway lines.

Considering the dry weather the gardens were a credit to the owners. The flowers were amazingly beautiful, so colourful and well placed in special themes. The raffle, a $40 gift voucher from Beau Hardware was won by Gloria Bremer. We had six people who could not join the tour for a variety of reasons. Patricia Lamb has misplaced her sunglasses and a small black umbrella was left on the bus.

The U3a garden group is such a happy group and we had a wonderful day.
Thank you everyone for making my first outing as a deputy a complete pleasure.

Regards, Marilyn Liebke for Liz Avery.
