Covid-19 continues to be a problem, particularly over winter. Our response to this situation is to be guided by Government directives and advice, which can be found here: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus.

We recommend that masks are to be worn when attending classes and events.
Face to face activities can only be undertaken by those who have been FULLY vaccinated. Prior to enrolling in any course or event a Sunbury U3A committee member must sight the vaccination certificate. Zoom is an option for some courses.

The Volunteer Strategy 2022-27 has just been released and the Victorian Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, Anthony Carbines is undertaking a statewide visit in recognition of our wonderful volunteers. Along with Josh Bull, the local MP for Sunbury and the Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers, Minister Carbines dropped in on Sunbury U3A’s Mah Jong group.
Both Ministers were keen to learn the intricacies of this ancient game and tutor Ron Choo took great pleasure in giving them both a lightening lesson into the mysteries of Pungs, Chows, Dragons and Winds.
