Railway murders @ Eltham Living & Learning Centre
May 25 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

This talk will be given by Fiona Malcolm, who is the Librarian at Melbourne Athenaeum Library.

Railway murders don’t all happen on the Orient Express! Mystery writers have long been drawn to trains, railways and stations as locations, not just because they are wonderful places to set a mystery, but also because they naturally contain all the best elements of a mystery – hordes of strangers, multiple destinations, people fleeing from the past or looking for a fresh start. From Murder on the Orient Express to Girl on the Train (and more), come along and talk all things mysterious and railway.

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

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.

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

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 Eltham Central Pavilion (at other times).

Mercy Ships @ Eltham Living & Learning Centre
Jun 8 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Mercy Ships is a global organisation which brings hope and healing to communities who need it most. It uses floating hospitals to provide medical care to those in desperate need of surgery and medical treatment.

This talk will be given by Tammy Shepherd. Tammy is a hospital-based physiotherapist whose good education and economic stability has allowed her to volunteer extensively with Mercy Ships and elsewhere. Her husband and adult children are supportive of her service to the African people via both Mercy Ships and mentoring local physios in a hospital in Congo.
