Settle District U3A NEWSLETTER

Issue No 11 - August 2003


With this Newsletter you should find:

It is important that all current members receive their copy of this Newsletter. If you know anyone who has not received theirs by 20 August, or anyone who may be a future member, please let me know.

If you will be away or otherwise unable to enrol on 4 September, please read the front page of the programme and follow the instructions. Enrolment can of course take place at any time after the AGM.

From September, members who know they cannot attend the monthly meeting on the first Thursday of the month can have their Newsletters posted to them if they give me a stamped, addressed envelope. They can also still be collected from my house or picked up by a friend at the meeting.

I have enjoyed this year and look forward to getting to know even more of you in the next session.
