The College for Seniors – or U3A Forbes – is celebrating 30 years at its Christmas lunch next month.

Everyone is urged to wear white and celebrate a “white Christmas” in honour of the pearl anniversary.

The day starts with the organisation’s AGM at 11am at the Forbes Services Memorial Club.

The College will recognise 30 outstanding years since it was founded by Roger McAdam and Bob Lytton in 1987.

Since formation, the local chapter has had a steady membership of about 200 people with some of its most popular courses around music.

The singers have always been a big part of the College’s activities, with courses around music also a feature.

But they do a lot more than that, including tai chi, twice-yearly theatre trips and courses on everything from writing to mindfulness, history, ancient wonders and current affairs.

While it’s called the Forbes College for Seniors, technically there is no age limit on those who can participate in their activities and take their classes.
