each month this page will illustrate some of the activities and personalities that have taken place since the last issue


     Throughout the year a group of friends get together to experience other towns throughout  the Central Highlands, They do this once a month to experience the unique features of  these small and larger towns throughout the area,  joining together for a leisurely lunch in different cafe’, restaurant or hotel then into the surrounding environment be it a walk along a river bank, into a forest, over a mountain’ or just an unplanned stroll to whatever their there fancy. Sound good?     The  group ,when I spoke to them assured me that not only was it fun to explore new areas and new things (and new people), it goes to another dimension of enjoyment when you do it with friends .
    Now for some answers to some questions
    ●    What are the costs involved?
This is a Creswick U3A sponsored event and as such is free for members, members pay only for    their lunch, normally about $20.00. Helen chooses venues that are reasonably priced.
   ●    What about transport?
If anyone wants a lift then car pooling is available, Members getting a lift to and from
  ●    Can a member go earlier and meet up for the lunch?
