U3A History Group
The History Group has flourished for some 16 years and, in the past, has the good fortune to be able to use a highly satisfactory room in the Old Museum of Torroella de Montgri for meetings and discussions.
We will now try to meet before a History presentation at a café within the Costa Brava area where the presentation will take place, about half an hour before it begins. Having solved most of the world’s problems We may probably gather in another room for the presentation and discussion. Some might to stay to lunch afterwards.The group will only meet when we have a volunteer for a presentation
Our original studies and talks were based on Spanish history but over the years we have widened our focus to include world events and personalities that have altered and shaped our world.
Currently there is no programme. Any suggestions for topics of interest or
willingness to give a presentation will be most welcome. Over the years we have
been incredibly fortunate to listen to members who have had a special interest in a
topic and have been able to pass on their enthusiasm and knowledge.
In the meantime we are venturing into the modern world of the Internet using facebook.
I therefore invite you to join a private hidden Facebook Group named U3A Costs Brava History
We can use this group, however you like, to present interesting topics, book recommendations, discussions of historical interest and more. This means that you do not have to leave the U3A group when you move away from the Costa Brava
To join a closed group you have to be approved by an administrator, currently me,or invited by a current member and be a member of the U3A CB group. Secret groups offer the same level of privacy as closed groups under a cloak of invisibility. No one can search for secret groups or request to join them. The only way to get in is to know someone who can invite you.
WARNING As administrator I. or another appointed by the administrator, reserve the right to approve or deny both membership and posts
Those of you who are unable to use Facebook should ask for a home visit.
