Our new Garden Club is inviting all CaseyU3A members to a special session to be held on Monday 11th April 10:00-11:00 in the Auditorium at Fiddlers Green. June Valentine, past President of The Herb Society of Vic. will be presenting about the history and uses of spices, she'll share some spice examples and conduct a fun quiz.

Bulletin - Website -- Facebook
The Bulletin will be published monthly now that we have returned to full-time classes.

No need for the humorous weekly "pick me ups"

Contributions for the Bulletin are always welcome.
Tutors, in particular, can keep all members informed about their classes & maybe attract more class members.

In between monthly Bulletins, keep up to date with current happenings & information via the U3A Casey website & U3A Casey private Facebook group.

As you all know tutors are the life blood of any U3A. Without tutors, we wouldn’t have any classes and without classes we wouldn’t have any members and without members Casey U3A would cease to exist!
So let’s showcase the wonderful talent we have on board!
Social Activities
The U3A Casey committee would very much like to see some one-off social activities being organised for members to attend.

eg. Trivia Night; Music afternoon; Bingo; 30th Anniversary Casey U3A Dinner; etc

We hope to form a small group from our membership base who could plan and carry out one social activity a quarter.

If willing to help please contact Chris Trimnell
