Previous Social Occasions


10 March 2020: Informal Social Morning

The Sports Bar AR Golf Club


RL social morning was held up in the new Sports Bar at AR golf club (formerly the Baker Finch room) and it’s a very comfortable venue. We enjoyed a wonderful talk by Lynne Haboubi about how to get involved in the UAE. There’s a lot we can do as long as we follow the rules and obtain the recommended permits

RL Circles News

You can see this month’s Circles Calendar and details of all our circles on our website http://www.arabianranchesladies.com



Renate Wernery has made a wonderful suggestion for a new evening circle which would be called Empower Women

The world and Dubai is full of strong and successful women we could invite to talk to us in various, interesting venues.
Renate is a member of SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL of Gulf-Dubai and is very passionate in encouraging sincerity in friendship and empower the advancement of women everywhere.

She already has some possible speakers lined up including Kim Thompson of RAW COFFEE; Assia, a Dubai citizen, who has single-handed secured training in our best hotels for rape and torture victims from African countries and Sareh Ameri, founder and first president of Soroptimist International of Gulf-Dubai, where we all actively volunteer our talents and energy to help women and girls live their dreams every day by giving them resources to create positive change – for themselves, their families and their communities.

To obtain speakers of this calibre, we would need to ensure sufficient support. If this is something you would be seriously interested in joining, please email Jackie or talk to Renate or Jackie at one of the RL meetings.

Please contact Jackie on circles.ranches.ladies@gmail.com if you would be interested in joining this or any of the circles
