What a great meeting this afternoon organised by Coordinator Alan Watts. Alan introduced Financial Advisor, Shannon who answered questions submitted by members at last month’s meeting.

Shannon spoke to us in terms we could understand and showed a genuine interest in the members of U3A and our circumstances as senior citizens.

I thoroughly recommend U3A members attend Alan’s Group. The subjects are very much related to the financial issues of our age group and personal circumstances. It is NOT a session for checking stock exchange listings and share prices.

Thanks Alan and Shannon for a very practical and entertaining afternoon.
