Happy Birthday Judy

Twenty five members enjoyed the special Lunch Group session when we celebrated Judy George's 80th Birthday this week.  We expressed our appreciation and affection for Judy - she is a very special person.  She has organised the lunch group since February 2011 but is now passing it on to Les Kirmsse (seen behind Judy in one photo). Angela de Hennin brought delicious cream and chocolate topped cupcakes. Thank you, Angela on behalf of everyone.

We are very grateful to Judy for everything she has done for U3A in Logan.  Many local members look forward to the monthly sessions at Tower Hotel Bistro, its a great chance to make friends and its all thanks to Judy.

As a member, you might care to point this out to your family, neighbours and friends.
