From Chairman Hazel Willard
I am delighted to report that the opening of our Tenth Anniversary Exhibition at Emsworth Museum was a great success. The exhibition, started as an idea by Reg Newnham and was developed further by Richard Swaine. The Mayor of Havant, cut the ribbon and after a few short speeches, the invited guests were at liberty to enjoy the exhibits show casing the many achievements of Ems Valley U3A. All thanks to Richard Galloway, the team leader and Juliet Walker, his right hand woman, with support from Jackie Oiller and Jeff Thatcher.
After the opening ceremony, we welcomed yet more guests, including founder members, four ex Chairman and our Third Age Trust Area Trustee Hilvary Robinson, to a reception of 'fizz' (provided by Alan Borrow) and anniversary cake (made by Jayne Harmer) at the Community Centre. Anne Newnham and a team of helpers, decorated the Lumley Room with U3A balloons and flowers (thanks to Liz Reynolds).
The reception ended with the talented members of the local 'Jazz Workshop' – who gave their services free to the U3A, playing a selection of Brazilian tunes , much enjoyed by Madame Mayor and Richard Galloway who danced together!
If you get a chance, do go along to the museum and see our exhibition for yourselves – it is well worth a visit.
Our next anniversary celebration, organised by Keith Davies, is the Hog Roast on August 25th – think positive please as we need good weather!
