HOT OFF THE PRESS!

The opening of our Emsworth Museum exhibition, to mark the 10th Year Anniversary of Ems Valley U3A, is approaching fast! The posters have now been printed, and are looking good. Here you can see a sneak preview of two of them. Come along to see all of them, in fabulous resolution and lustrous vibrancy!
The exhibition opens on the afternoon of Friday August 5th - with the Official Opening by the Mayor of Havant, Councillor Faith Ponsonby, on Saturday 6th - and is on throughout August, with a possible extension to mid September.

‘Just a minute……..
A short message from your Chairman – Hazel Willard.
I see from our website that our U3A has had its’ usual busy time with an extended visit by Wine Group1 and outings with the Gardening Group, Bird Watching, Cycling group and Theatre trips, to mention but a few!
The talk by our member, Philip Robinson, on the story behind the ‘Battle of the Somme’ was well attended and much enjoyed. In his vote of thanks, Richard Galloway brought it all a bit closer to home with mention of his uncles who died in that horrendous battle. After tea, we enjoyed a presentation from the leaders of the Jazz Group who played a selection of their favourite music, accompanied by much foot tapping from the audience!
I requested offers of help to organise a visit to the Houses of Parliament and am delighted that Steve Corban has come forward to offer to do this. Hopefully, by now, Anne Newnham has also received offers of help with serving cake and drinks at the opening of our museum exhibit next month. If you would like to help, please contact Anne via the website.
Our July meeting should be another entertaining hour with a talk on Dean Martin and the ‘Rat Pack’, followed by a presentation by another mystery Group.
Meanwhile, preparations for our tenth anniversary exhibition at the Museum and our celebration 0Hog Roast lunch in August are well advanced. All we need is some better weather to help us celebrate two great events.
I look forward to seeing many of you on July 28th for our final meeting this summer. We have a break in August (although Alan Borrow is planning a visit to Hastings and Battle on 21 August) and then we meet again in September.
