Lighthouses and the Coldstream Guards @ Eltham Living & Learning Centre
May 11 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Many people wonder what it would be like to live on a lighthouse and what sorts of people chose that lifestyle. U3A member June Rushton will begin her talk with the story of her father and his time as a Coldstream Guard, the oldest, continuously serving, regular regiment in the British Army. As part of the Household Division, one of its principal roles is the protection of the monarchy. She will then tell how her family moved to Australia and ended up as a lighthouse family living on Bruny Island, Swan Island and Cape Sorrell before transferring over to Victorian stations at Wilsons Promontory, Cape Otway and Cape Nelson.

Biggest Morning Tea @ Eltham Central Pavilion
May 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

We will once again be part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, an annual Cancer Council fund raising event. This will be a great opportunity to socialise with other U3A members and will also raise funds to go towards research and provide support for people with cancer and their loved ones. All that is required on the day is for you come along with some cash (yes, cash please!) to donate to this worthy cause. There’ll be a cuppa, some nibbles provided by U3A and lots of friendly company.

For those unable to attend but who would like to make a donation, you can place some money in an envelope marked The Biggest Morning Tea and drop it into the Office (whilst it is open) or into the letterbox on the outside wall (at other times).
