Welcome to all members of Clarence U3A to another year of exciting activities. I was elected as your President for 2020 the AGM on 19 February. As I am new to this position I will therefore introduce myself. My name is Len Spaans, aged 74, and young at heart but older elsewhere. I am a retired professional engineer with a background in military research. In the late 1990's and before moving to Tasmania in 2006 my wife Gay and I belonged to the U3A on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland where I was the newsletter editor. I am pleased to be supported by a committee that you are all familiar with and with their support and guidance I hope to serve you into year 2020.
