Monika Picton, the energetic member of the local committee and of Tony's Painting for Pleasure group, has organised an art exhibition  from1st May to 30th June at Sunnybank Hills Library, Cnr Compton and Calem Roads.  


Logan Community Centre hall (where we had that great Christmas party) has been booked for Tuesday 7th July, 9 to 12 (for 9.30 start).  There will be tables for teams of up to 8 players, and all classes are invited to enter as many teams as they can drum up.  Classes can combine with other classes if they wish which would be a good way to make more friends within U3A. Email or phone me on 0400 747298 if you haven't enough students to make up a team and I'll coordinate contact between classes. Please encourage your students to join in as this should be a lot of fun.  Contact Janet or Trevor at to book, or just reply to this and I'll forward your response.
