Congratulations Mary Nathan

On 30 May, we celebrated our first current member reaching their 100th birthday. Mary Nathan is a long-time member of U3A Nunawading and currently attends weekly exercise classes, plays Cards and enjoys Mah Jong Eastern style.

Retiring from tennis at 87 when her young team members went back to work, Mary was left wondering what to do. She found U3A through her hairdresser and as they say, the rest is history.

Mary’s long life is a testament to her active engagement. In addition to her U3A classes, she enjoys a red wine at 4 pm and another with her dinner and is not averse to a flutter on the ponies.

Mary has received a congratulations letter from the King, as well as a congratulatory message from the Mayor as a Citizen of Whitehorse and was recognised by the Department of Defence for her time in the army.

Congratulations, Mary, from U3A Nunawading! See the photo gallery of the celebration.
