U3A SOUTHERN PENINSULA TODAY

We now have 800+ members and provided more than 70 activities and courses utilising the Old Shire Office, Dromana plus other venues from Rosebud to Sorrento and several private homes. Our financial position is reasonably secure, however ongoing accommodation to enable us to grow our course offerings is a continual problem.

However as our membership continues to grow steadily, our number of courses has flattened out in recent years and will continue unless more people volunteer eg, especially for tutoring. To continue to survive, U3A SP depends upon the goodwill and generosity of it's members in providing their skills, knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm in offering to run courses.

U3A Southern Peninsula success of the past 25 years was was largely due to the willingness of many, many members to volunteer their time and their skills. However much more work needs to be done in shaping our large and diverse U3A to meet the needs of baby boomers as they start to make their presence felt.
