I am Anne Turner, and I am the treasurer for our organisation.
Don, my husband, and I moved to Port Sorell 4 years ago after living on the Gold Coast for 25 years. We originally came from Tasmania and are delighted to be back living in such a glorious place.
Our decision to move back to Tassie was prompted by a visit to scatter my parent’s ashes in a place they loved, off the boat ramp at Port Sorell.
They had a holiday home in Port Sorell for many years, and as a teenager, I spent some very happy holidays here. My dad taught Don & I to waterski off Baker’s Beach many years ago. So Port Sorell has a special place in my heart.
I am an accountant, a member of CPA Australia, and have worked for a number of years as a director of a professional services firm on the Gold Coast. I have been working from home in a part time capacity from here in Port Sorell, and will be fully retired from 30 June.
Whilst I have not yet undertaken any of the courses offered by U3A, it has been my pleasure to act as a member of the committee, and to look after the financial affairs of the organisation. As I head into retirement, I will be checking out the amazing courses on offer, so look forward to meeting more members in a social environment.
