Thu Jun 4thSocialCELEBRATION TIME! - POSTPONED

ST PETERS, MARKET HILL, SUDBURY

U3A Day is set to celebrate the new experiences that come from being in your third age (no longer in full-time employment or bringing up children.)
This annual event,open to the general public, will show the amazing and diverse things that our
members enjoy doing and challenge preconceptions of what being an older adult means.
As the event is open to the general public,we thought what better way to do this, than to showcase our many wonderful groups here in Sudbury
Your Committee have decided the best day for our U3A is Thursday 4th June as it is market day and there will be lots of people in Sudbury.
I encourage all groups to take part: do come and show off your talents to the wider community! Don`t be put off if your group is full and you cannot take any more members - we will take names and form more groups!
To all our members: please do come and support your groups and your U3A.
Let`s show the wider community just how good it can be to be an 'older person'.
Keep watch for further updates, opening times etc which will be communicated via Su3an, the website, monthly meetings and group leaders.Anita Floodgate
