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.

All GO for this year after Open Day

Every year Beaudesert U3A holds an Open Day, when we showcase various activities to the public.

In late January, in the spacious function room at the RSL club rooms, we had a highly successful morning with a total of 150 attendees and 18 new members signing up on the day, with many others expressing interest in following up one or two activities. President Andy Fechner had organised a very "hands on" event. Centre of the room was our new aqua-aerobics recruit - a store dummy in appropriate swim wear and even her own child's paddling pool!

There were displays of line dancing and also a table tennis set-up which was busy all morning as visitors and our group presenters picked up paddle and ball. Members of the card groups and mahjong played happily to demonstrate their interests, totally disengaged from the buzz around them (don't let anything come between an avid card player and the game!) Excellent static displays included scrapbooking, computers, trivia puzzling, French, mosaics, art and gardening, with both our new activities (calligraphy and travel) well represented.

Now we are into the new season with most groups active during Term 1, apart from acoustic guitar which is in recess at present.
