On 13th September, we held our Footy morning tea. Christina Polatajko, forwards coach for the Carlton AFLW team spoke about her journey to becoming an AFLW coach team. U3A members of the Diamond Valley Big Band started off the morning by playing some of the AFL footy theme songs, with many of our members singing along.

We held a raffle with proceeds of $186 being donated to the Eltham Senior Women’s Football Team, who were appreciative of our donation. We would like to thank the following local businesses for donating raffle prizes: Baker’s Delight – Eltham, Grill’d – Eltham, Harvest Fresh Fruit Market, Patty Smith’s Healthy Burgers, Pieross Italian Cake and Pizza and Shane McVeigh. A special thank you to Joan Dennison, our U3A ISO chook creator, who donated Some ISO footy chooks for the raffle.

The morning would have not happened without the following people: Alison Pieper, Carmen Breust, Dennis Smith, Hector Hart, Jane Hammett, Judy Vizzari, Julie Smith, Karenne Lack, Laraine Hussey, Marianne Petersen, Sue Bailey, Sue Brenkovich and Wayne Meade.
