JAVEA U3A member Colin Rogerson wrote to RTN to say some thankyous and some goodbyes and showed us that members of Javea U3A certainly know how to enjoy themselves!
‘Only a day after members of the Wine Appreciation Group met at La Cocina restaurant in the Port, more than 70 members of the Dine and Dance Group danced the night away at Javea Golf Club.
The wine tasting group – affectionately known as WAGs – run by leader Trevor Rush, enjoyed a presentation by Steve Sanchis, from Bodegas Leopoldo in Ondara. Steve, who supplies La Cocina with most of their wines, brought along four wines for members to taste: one white, one rose and three reds.
Steve gave an interesting and informative description of how each wine was produced – and then left it to members to judge for themselves just how good it tasted! The overall verdict was extremely favourable and members were more than happy to wash down their meal with another glass of red.
So popular is the wine tasting group that the following day, Trevor ran a second lunch for members of WAGs Too.
Thanks to the warm summer weather, the Dine and Dance Group, run by Pat and Eric Johnson, were able to enjoy a three-course meal and dancing to the duo Timewarp on the outside terrace at the golf club.
The only sad moment came when it was announced that group leaders Pat and Eric had decided to retire from their duties after 10 years.
Fellow member David Main thanked them for their wonderful contribution, saying that they would be a hard act to follow. But he added that there was already a short-list of possible successors and he hoped that there would be somebody willing and able to continue running the group!’
