Camera Club Field Trip

U3A maybe on a break, but that doesn't mean the camera club shouldn't meet. So this morning, we ventured to South Bank to visit the Gallery of Modern Art. Photos by Diane Bohlen.

Club Members mingled with other visitors to capture the exhibits 

One of the most dramatic exhibitions held at GOMA, ‘Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth’ presents major new works by a truly global artist, whose large-scale installations and explosion events have made him one of the most innovative figures in contemporary art.

This was a truly memorable photo excursion by the Logan District U3A Camera Club.

Libraries always have too many books or books they replace after a certain time. Our libraries in Logan City have a community book store where these book are sold to the public. The store is run by community groups and all moneys stay with the groups.

Well, in March it was Logan District U3A's turn to run the store on a Saturday between 9 and 2.

The Book Shop at the Library
Logan Central Library 
Besides Books, we sold DVDs and Audio Books
Frances and Michael, a couple of U3A Volunteers
The Book Shop had a variety of books, DVDs and CDs for sale
We had a steady trickle of customers coming in the shop between 9 AM and 2 PM. The shop is open every Saturday and is restocked every week before it is open for another community group. We think the Logan City Council is to be congratulated for providing this fabulous service for community groups to derive an income and for the public to stock up on inexpensive books.

Lots to Browse
We made a decent sum of money and plan to do it again in September.
