U3A is a shared experience.

All of us at Browns Bay U3A play our part during the year – we may be Committee members, Convenors, or Special Interest Group members, and we all play our part in making sure that our monthly meetings go smoothly. We all take our turn serving morning tea, moving seating, greeting newcomers and enjoying fellowship and mental stimulation. Want to have fun and keep the grey matter working?  You are most welcome to join us.
