Children’s Christmas Shoebox Gifts - Reminder

This year we will once again be distributing Christmas gift boxes to the children of the Bastidor centre. For those of you who don’t know, this not-for-profit centre offers underprivileged children of Oliva after-school help with homework, etc.
The idea is simple: if you or anyone you know (this isn’t restricted to U3A members) wish to donate, please email me at shoebox@u3aoliva.org the number of boxes you wish to prepare. I will then email you back with the gender and age of a child (for example girl, age 8) for each box
You then just need to find an empty shoebox (if you don’t have spares at home, local shops or the Oliva Friday market stalls happily oblige). Then fill it with presents to a value not exceeding 15euros. This is important so that no child gets more than others. There’s no limit to the amount of love that goes in, however!
Please don’t put any food or sweets in the boxes. In the past boxes have included things such as t-shirts, hats, socks, small toys, drawing materials, educational items, accessories
Then wrap it, decorate it if you wish, and attach a label (that won’t easily fall off and colour it blue for boy and pink for girl - this is a great help when sorting the boxes) clearly stating the age & gender of the lucky child who gets your present
We will organise a collection point sometime in early December
Reminder to members

We are now well into a new year for U3A Oliva and most of the groups are up and running once more.
To that end, we must remind everyone of the requirement to be a member of the Oliva U3A to join a group.
One is allowed to attend two group meetings (as a 'taster'), without being a member, but continued attendence requires membership, which the group leader has to confirm by sight of your membership card.
Note, telling the leader your membership number is not enough.
Your card is available via the 'Your Profile' link on the membership page and can be saved, printed or (perhaps easiest), photographed to show the leader.
We are required to complete an annual update of our groups register and to ensure that each participant is a paid up member.
Hi there, I'm Elfred, the Christmas Elf, and I'm hoping to see you at the U3a Oliva Pre Christmas Coffee Morning which will take place at the Pensionistas, Oliva, on Thursday 24 November from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm.
Craft and handmade items made by your fellow U3a members will be on display for you to buy. There will be Art Works, Pottery, Card and Paper Crafts, Jewellery, Knitted items and Needlework to tempt your purse strings open.
See you there!
