Brenda Loader, who will be 100 this year, was one of three people who cut the cake at the Howick U3A 30th birthday celebration held recently.
The other two were foundation members Gill Muggleston and Betty Gate.
Speakers covered 25 topics from anthropology to history involving power point presentations to a humorous skit about ageing covering the last 30 years.
Former president and former opera singer, Geraldine Rose, sang unaccompanied about aging. This, and all events, were well received. The occasion concluded with a light lunch.
A commemorative magazine was produced by Judy Wilson covering 2013 to the present. Judy Wilson had also produced an earlier magazine from 1993 to 2013.
U3A was formerly known as University of the Third Age and involves life-long learning.
It meets at the Howick Bowling Club on the second Monday of the month at 9.30. A tertiary education is not required to join.
