International Women’s Day was a roaring success

Our unique lady model set the tone and appeared in many selfies and photos taken on the day.

The buzz of being able to socialise again ‘normally’ made the celebrations for International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8 March at the Hub very special. Supporting the campaign theme #BreakTheBias, the camaraderie and the chatter of happy people were infectious as members enjoyed home-baked treats with tea and coffee.

Fun and laughter

The Hub was decorated in the colours that represented IWD; purple (signifies justice), green (symbolises hope) and white (represents purity) and many members also reflected this in their attire on the day. Our unique lady model set the tone and appeared in many selfies and photos as you can see in the photo gallery.

One of our male members wore a lovely purple tie and when complimented on it by June MacDonald, he said it was picked out by his wife. “Where would you be without women folk?” June said. Quick as a flash and with great humour he responded, “Well when Mark Twain was asked where would you men be without women, the reply was mighty scarce!”

Great team effort

Well done to June McDonald who instigated the IWD event at very short notice and congratulations to the U3A Committee of Management and The Hub Management for creating the festive and colourful atmosphere. Many thanks to Kitty Wong who made colour co-ordinated tiny origami cranes; to June McDonald and Elsie Mutton for the matching floral arrangements; Paulina Chong who sourced the videos and images and Valerie Donlon who arranged with Hub staff to have them running on the screens in the public areas throughout the day.

IWD was a wonderful social occasion that has set the bar for many happy events to come.
