Laughter, reflections and recognition – that was the theme of a vibrant celebration held to mark U3A Mornington’s Jubilee Year on April 13. Hundreds of members and volunteers, past and present, filled the Peninsula Community Theatre to celebrate the volunteer-run organisation’s 25th year.
The event also featured the launch of a history book tracing the local U3A’s 25 years, titled ‘Shelbourne to Currawong’. Guests enjoyed a performance by the U3A Mornington Choir, a fan dancing class display and afternoon tea featuring a birthday cake made of cupcakes iced in the U3A’s colours. The other ‘icing on the cake’ was the sight of president Tom Jeavons and past presidents Hans Eisen, Peter Harris, Peter Sas and Hans Van Der Sluys cutting the cake together to mark the milestone.
