PALS NEEDED
After a successful years’ trial of our newly formed PALS system, we are looking for more members to become PALS. Last year we were pleased to welcome 90 new members to our U3A and look forward to doing the same, or even better, this year. Some of our original PALS have moved away and, together with our increased membership, this means more PALS are needed. If you would like to become a PAL contact the Membership Coordinator for more details.
