SUCCESSFUL OPEN DAY AND GRAND OPENING – January 2017
Our Open Day and Grand Opening on 24 January was a great success with over 190 people attending. Mayor, Paul Pisasale, presented us with a beautiful Chinese brush painting that was gifted to the Ipswich City Council by Shandong U3A in November 2016. The Mayor also presented Shirley Ferrier, founding member of U3A and tutor of 23 years, with a certificate of acknowledgement for her wonderful contribution to our U3A.
Also attending were Julie Porteous and Greg Doolan, President and Vice President of the U3A Network Queensland (left side of photo). It was a pleasure to meet them and we look forward to being part of the greater U3A network.
The brush painting was hung by our fabulous Campus Manager, Geoff Mayhew, and is proudly gracing the wall of the reception office so please do come down and have a look. We are at Shop 226, Ipswich City Mall and can be found at the back of the arcade where St George Bank is on the corner.
And while we were all together in one place, a very rare occasion, most of the tutors and some of the volunteers managed to coordinate themselves enough to get their photo taken! So here are some of the wonderful people who make U3A Ipswich & West Moreton possible.
