Jávea U3A
 

General Meetings

The 2013 Extravaganza

At the last meeting of the year, with Christmas just around the corner, the Jávea U3A once again decided to thrill its membership with another all expenses spared Extravaganza. The photos below only tell part of the story, the juicy bits being held back for the current President's memoirs?

The photos show:

  • Rehearsals the day before.
  • The pre-meeting activities.
  • Presentation to Cáritas of cheques representing monies collected by the Jávea U3A for our chosen charity in 2013.
  • Our President and Ian Mackenzie lead the audience in the Jávea U3A Anthem.
  • The Costa Blanca Male Voice Choir provide a supberb rendition of a number of carols and favourites.
  • Piddley Pete introduces the Piddle Spankers Morris Dancers from Piddletrendhide.
  • Piddley Pete and the Dancers do their thing!
  • Presentation to the Director of the sketch, Sally Wells, for a great show.
  • Mince pies and sherry for all.

Many thanks to Tom Miller for the photos.
