Sixty Tutors and Volunteers gathered at the Middle Park Bowling Club on Friday 26 March for a joyous face to face gathering.
Graham Gosling, U3APP President, welcomed everyone on behalf of the Committee of Management. He paid tribute to their outstanding contribution during the past year. Tutors and Volunteers rose to the occasion during Government COVID restrictions and kept Members engaged in learning and with one another.
Graham reported that U3APP is regarded by U3A Network as a model for other Victorian U3As, a proud achievement.
While the recipients of Life Membership and Meritorious Awards were announced at the AGM in November 2020, Graham was able to present 2020 recipients with their framed awards for their enormous contributions to U3APP over a ten-year period.
The worthy recipients were Sandra Mason and José Simsa who received Life Membership awards and Ming Tim Yek, a Meritorious Award.
Tutors and Volunteers mingled over a glass of sparkling and delicious finger food organised by Sandra Mason, U3APP Catering Manager. Sandra was ably assisted by U3APP Members, Barbara Fisher and Claire Keech.

We've had a wonderful array of photos sent to us by our resident U3APP photographers, Barry 'Mac' McIntosh and Aziza Khamlichi. We're delighted to be able to show many of them here and thank Mac and Aziza for their time and effort in taking and sending them to us so quickly.
