John Butters OAM, our first President, passed away last week.

One of our members and friend of John’s for over 60 years, Glenice Palmer, wrote the following tribute to him.

John had a deep love of history and was a great believer in ongoing education. He worked tirelessly for both young and old throughout his whole life and I am sure he has had an influence for good wherever he has served. He sought to bring out the best in people.

Our sympathy goes to John’s wife, Merle, and his family.   

Rest In Peace, John, our first President and Life Member.

LEARN CPR AT U3A REDLANDS

CPR Awareness Background

Since 2008, local area coordinators (LACs) have been conducting CPR Awareness Training sessions, within their communities, throughout Qld. This program has been endorsed by the Qld Ambulance Service, as the benefit of effective bystander CPR is well known.  

In an emergency every second counts.

With only a $7 fee (which covers the cost of the Handy Hints book, which you get to take home), you can learn the life-saving steps of CPR, through these Awareness Sessions.  76% of cardiac arrests occur at home and the most likely witness is a spouse or family member.

The Cleveland LAC members have been undertaking these CPR Awareness sessions throughout the Redlands, since the beginning of 2010.  100s of Redlanders have been shown the theory of CPR, as well as undertaken compressions on training mannikins, to hopefully make a real difference to help save someone's life.   

Classes now open on our webpage - please note, only one class required to attain CPR competency.

BUILDING OUR FUTURE

U3A Redlands is excited to announce their plans to build a U3A Redlands Centre on land which has been offered through the Redlands Research Facility!

Over 80 people attended morning tea on April 27 - special guests included U3A Redlands Patron and Mayor, Cr Karen Williams, Leonard McKeown, Executive Principal of Cleveland District State High School, Mark Robinson MP Oodgeroo, Kim Richards MP Redlands, Henry Pike electoral candidate for Bowman, Robyn Robinson, President, RDCOTA.

President Janese Lowe spoke to the audience about U3A Redlands long standing association with Cleveland District State High School, which had only been intended as temporary accommodation back in 1999 and the need for a purpose built stand alone building. Shane Holborn, Redland Research Station Facility Manager, gave an overview of the research being carried out by various companies, Universities and community tenants already on the facility, and welcomed the opportunity for U3A Redlands to create an Administration Centre alongside the existing U3A Garden.

Mayor Karen Williams applauded the venture and spoke of the long standing commitment U3A Redlands has shown to the seniors in our community. The new Centre project will take many months to complete and will rely on the generosity of members - at the moment it is a piece of land looking green and inviting!
