Last Week’s Programme
26 November 2019: Andreea Stefanescu

The School of Manners

It costs 55Dhs for RL members and 65dhs for guests to attend the Tuesday Social Mornings which reimburses AR Golf Club for the use of the room and the refreshments. Please bring the exact money in a labelled envelope, if you can, which will really help us.

We now also have a new option, the 6 week pre-payment card. These can be purchased for 330dhs and will allow you to attend the RL social morning on 6 occasions without the need to hunt for your entrance fee.

RL Requests

RL is run entirely by volunteers and we rely on your kindness to give a few hours of your time each week to assist the Committee and keep Ranches Ladies running. We are currently looking for deputies to act as assistants to Jackie (Circles Coordinator), Anne (our treasurer) and to update the website with Sara (Webteam). The easiest way you can help is to volunteer as one of our Meet and Greet ladies if you have a little time once a month.

Please speak to Julia on ranches.ladies@gmail.com for more information about being a meet and greet lady or talk to any of the committee if you think you can help in any other way.

Important Info

Please remember, you need to be a current member of Ranches Ladies to join any of our Circles, attend our trips or claim your discounts. If you know anyone who would like to join Ranches Ladies please bring them on a Tuesday morning and see our website How To Join Our Membership
