Term I Timetable now available

Hooray! we have a timetable for Term I. Sorry its a bit late but then good things are always worth waiting for. Our Program Coordinator, Phil, has been doing a great job and has prepared some interesting topics for us.

Last week we had a very interesting talk given by Stephen Tamplin RN ND DAc who runs Central West Naturopathic here in Cowra. We are all inspired to do more to improve our health and well being by applying the principal that we are what we eat.

Coming up in March and early April we have the continuation of Australian Poetry presented by Philomena Hewitson. In the first session we looked at some early Australian poets and their work. We look forward to seeing what Phil has for us in the next Session.

Phil is also presenting the Kimberleys, some more in the series History of Everyday Things which has given us an insight into the development of things we use all the time but don't think about how they came about. Previously we have looked at Coffee, Rubber, Tea and colour. we look forward to finding out more about another everyday thing.

Beverley Rolfe prepared notes and a Powerpoint Presentation on Turkey, the country Cowra is featuring in this years Festival of International Understanding coming up on the 10,11,& 12 of March. We didn't get through all the topics so will be having another session and then on the 10 March we are cooking Turkish food and serving it a a lunch which we hope will be attended by the public as well as our members.

For our major study this year we are having 3 or 4 sessions per term on Lighthouses. Beverley has been working away at this for well over a year so look forward to finding out lots about Lighthouses.

Seniors Week is on from the 21 to 27 of March and we are looking forward to being involved in a full program of events organized by many community groups with the help of Cowra Shire Council Project Officer Lisa. As our contribution, with the Cowra and District Senior Citizens we are presenting the 3rd Great Seniors Week Trivia Challenge on the 27 March. Though we try hard we haven't managed to win yet so maybe this will be our year. It is always lots of fun.

As well as those items mentioned above our regular Tai Chi sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday between 9.00 am and 10.30 am. Italian language and culture classes are held every Thursday at 1.30 pm.

If you would like information about Cowra U3A or would like to come to any of these activities give Bev 6341 1030 or Phil 6342 1204 a ring or call in to the Cowra Senior Citizens Centre on a Tuesday or Thursday or send us an email at
