Cairns U3A Douglas Shire Branch 

 

We launched on Monday 19 April 2021 and our Branch buds have bloomed. U3A Cairns President Denise and some members of the committee ventured up to Port Douglas on Monday to Palmers Sea Reef Golf Club where we officially acknowledged our new Branch of Cairns U3A.

The celebration was attended by over 80 guests; the wet weather did not dampen our spirits, though we acknowledge some supporters were unable to attend owing to the rain. We welcomed 40 new members who signed up on the day and introduced our Douglas Shire committee and our Tutors who are making things happen in these early days. “It is just what we need” has been the general feeling from the community. Personally, I am so happy to be part of something so positive, ably supported by our wonderful committee.  We look forward to new adventures. Stay tuned for more.
