Ranches Ladies Newsletter

Happy Sunday Morning to all Ranches Ladies.

We hope you have a great week.

Many schools have Spring Break and, while overseas travel is still difficult, it’s a great opportunity to make the most of all that Dubai and the UAE have to offer.

One of our members has been featured in The Khaleej Times. Kumkum Ramchandani took comfort in writing during lockdown and recently published a book of short stories. Congratulations Kumkum!

Tuesday Morning Coffee Meet Ups

Old Style Greetings

We are waiting for approval to restart our regular Tuesday social mornings and hope this will become possible as COVID cases drop and more people are vaccinated.

You can also email ranches.ladies@gmail.com to keep up to date with developments.
