Jávea U3A


The President's Report (May 2016)

I have been travelling in Italy for the last month and on my return I find the Xiringito’s blooming, heralding the beginning of summer,and Jávea looking wonderful.

I am looking forward to the May Ball on Thursday 26th May, organised by Krystyna Stefanczyk and I hope to see many of you there.

The Committee has been working hard in my absence and Shirley King, our Events Organiser, has arranged a new venue for the ever popular Barn Dance. It will be held at the Venta de Posa Restaurant in La Xara Denia on 28th October. Tickets will be on sale in June. Shirley will also be selling the last few tickets for the BBQ in July at the General Meeting.

During May, David and Hilary Grove conducted a very successful quiz at the Golf Club, and Angela and Tony took 48 members of the Spanish Culture Group to Mar Menor and Lorca on a four day trip.

I am looking forward to the presentation at the General Meeting by Peter Davies, who besides being an accomplished and humorous speaker is an old friend of mine. I hope that many of you will come to hear him.

Finally, I regret that Geoff Woodward has resigned as Vice President for personal reasons. I and the entire Committee have had an excellent working relationship with him and will miss his wise counsel.
