Great moments to remember – Singers Herman heard “live” in Opera and Recital.

First Newsletter of 2018 out NOW (posted 5 Mar 2018)
Our brand new Newsletter Editor has produced a ripper for her first one. Welcome aboard Annette! You are carrying on a fine tradition of quality newsletters. This edition reports on our highly successful Open Day. It also features a great photo of Deanna Davies with the beautiful lecturn she presented to the U3AAT in memory of her late husband and our founding president, Glyn Davies.
Note also that the newsletter will no longer be posted out in hard copy form. The cost has become too prohibitive. So if you did not receive a copy by email, please send a note to Annette at email@example.com and your email address will be added to the distribution list. For all those without email, there are copies in Room 22 for you to read on your next visit.
Annette would also love to receive any tidbits of information, news or jokes. Just shoot them off to firstname.lastname@example.org
Annual General Meeting of U3AAT (posted 27 Feb 2018)
Sunday, 2pm, 8th April at Glyn Davies Room 22.
Please come along and support us. U3AAT runs well because we have volunteers willing to give some of their time to help. Maybe you have enjoyed the benefits that U3AAT brings and are now willing to lend a hand? You don’t have to be a Committee member, just be there to give us new ideas and help out from time to time with activities. You will find it very rewarding.
Please provide an email address (posted 22 Feb 2018)
We currently have 60 members who have not provided us with an email address. It is extremely difficult to keep these members up-to-date with course additions, course changes, course cancellations, U3A events and newsletters. Postage costs are prohibitive and slow, so we are unlikely to be using postal services in future for these tasks.
New email addresses (posted 21 Feb 2018)
As stated below, there will be quite a few changes to the web site and ancilliary services in the near future. Some of these are happening in the background so most won’t notice. For example, we have just finished migrating to a new service provider and new server. Hopefully there will now be minimal drop-outs and the site will be more secure from spammers and hackers.
Another change is to important email addresses. Please use these new email addresses when contacting the following:
Course co-ordinator – email@example.com
Membership – firstname.lastname@example.org
Treasurer – email@example.com
Secretary – firstname.lastname@example.org
Newsletter editor – email@example.com
Webmaster – firstname.lastname@example.org
