TUESDAY 3 MARCH:
A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD with Tom Hanks playing the lead in a story about an American children's entertainer. A timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor.
Again we had a top class guest speaker featuring at our AGM on Friday 18 October. The event kicked off at 2 pm with a brief update on the year's progress from the President and Treasurer, followed by some changes to the committee and a look at the winners of our annual photography competition.
Then it was our great pleasure to introduce our members to Jo Stewart-Rattray, a popular speaker at many business events for her knowledge of cyber security. However, her speech for us was on a vastly different topic: how a childhood dream of being more like her Hollywood idol, came true when she set foot on the greatest forum in the world, representing Australia.
It all ended with our usual afternoon tea to celebrate our fifteenth birthday.
Friday 6 December was our final day for the 2019 U3A
year with lunch at the Blyth Hall supper room before a short walk across the carpark to the Blyth Cinema for a special screening of a film picked just for us.The committee looked over several and chose 'Fisherman's Friends' which turned out to be just the sort of feel good movie one wants to close the year and we all learned some new verses to What do you do with a drunken sailor.
