U3A Network Victoria is delighted to announce the award of a COTA Victoria Senior Achiever Award to the Network President Elsie Mutton as part of the 2013 Victorian Senior of the Year programme.
U3A Network Victoria’s Hon Secretary, Susan Webster, has been appointed to the newly-established Ministerial Advisory Committee on Senior Victorians. The committee will be advising State Health Minister David Davis on possible whole-of-government initiatives to promote an age-friendly society and to enhance community participation by senior Victorians.
U3A Network has received a generous donation from the Estate of the late Jack McDonnell, who died recently, and who was the first president of Network 25 years ago. All older Network officials had memories of Jack’s contributions to the establishment of Network, and his service was attended by many past and current U3A members.
