Angel Flight @ Old Eltham Courthouse

Reg Shiel and Warren Sparrow, from Angel Flight Australia, will discuss what they do and why.

Angel Flight Australia is a charity which coordinates non-emergency flights to assist country people to access specialist medical treatment that would otherwise be unavailable to them because of vast distance and high travel costs. All flights are free and assist passengers travelling to and from medical facilities almost anywhere in Australia. They do hundreds of flights each year in and out of Melbourne and have many volunteers who live in Melbourne.

Book your place by emailing the Office (office@nillumbiku3a.org.au).

Moon over Buffalo (play) @ Eltham Little Theatre
Sep 8 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

During 2022, Eltham Little Theatre are generously offering U3A members half price tickets for their Thursday evening and Sunday matinee shows. The dates for which this is applicable for Moon over Buffalo are: Thursday, 8th September, starting 8pm; Sunday, 11th September, starting 2pm; and Thursday, 15th September, starting 8pm.

An acting couple Charlotte and George Hay are on tour in Buffalo in 1953 with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac and Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Fate has given these thespians one more shot at starring roles in the Scarlet Pimpernel epic and director Frank Capra himself is enroute to catch their matinee performance. Will Charlotte appear or run off with their agent? Will George be sober enough to emote? Hilarious misunderstandings pile on madcap misadventures in this screwball comedy.

Here are the mechanics: you book your tickets online. Choose the date, then the number of tickets (adult only, not concession), then enter the ‘202250’ discount code in the ‘gift certificate / promotion code’ box, then pay.

Footy morning tea @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Sep 12 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

What better way to celebrate the Finals than a morning tea with sausage rolls, meat pies and hot dogs, listening to an erstwhile Collingwood premiership captain and coach (and Nillumbik local), Tony Shaw, in the best local footy pavilion in Melbourne? Even if Collingwood is not your favourite team, Tony is recognised as a great and amusing story teller and we are very pleased that he has agreed to speak to us. This is your chance to demonstrate your allegiance by wearing your footy colours and singing your team’s song.
