Social Activities

COFFEE WITH FRIENDS – At 9.30am on the last weekday of every month except December, we meet at a coffee shop to enjoy a friendly chat, a hot cuppa and, perhaps, some tasty nibbles from the kitchen. Non-members are welcome to join us, no invitation required. The chosen venue changes from time to time. For 2019 we will meet at:

Term 1 – Farmer & Sun (Southside Shopping Centre)

Term 2 – Healthy Options (Gympie Marketplace)

Term 3 – Decks on Mary (Cnr Channon & Mary Streets)

Term 4 – TBA

We do not meet in December

TUESDAY LUNCH – Every Tuesday at 12.40, we meet for lunch at an inexpensive venue. It is an informal gathering, where we order from the a la carte menu. We select one venue for each term. In 2019 we will meet at:

Term 1 – Charlie’s Hotel, opposite Coles

Term 2 – Ambrosia Farmer & Sun

Term 3 – RSL Gympie

Term 4 – TBA

FEAST WITH FRIENDS – This is a new activity started in 2018, loosely based on previous Pop-up Lunches. In Terms 1, 2 and 3 we travel out of town to meet up with another U3A group over an inexpensive lunch. Transport will be by car pool, with non-drivers paying $5.00 to their driver to defray costs. In Term 4 we will invite other U3A’s to join us at our end or year lunch.

GAMES AND PUZZLES – At 9.00am every Wednesday of term, we meet at Central food court to enjoy board games and good company. Central food court is located at Gympie Central Shopping Centre on the corner of the Bruce Highway and Excelsior Road. Non-members are welcome to join us, no invitation required. This activity costs $2 per session.
