Good morning Ranches Ladies!
We hope you had a great Eid holiday and have a wonderful week ahead.
We don’t yet know when our regular Tuesday social mornings will be able to restart. We hope this will become possible as COVID cases drop and more people are vaccinated.
In the meantime, please pop along to LARTE restaurant in Studio One Hotel on Tuesday mornings from 10.30 – 11.30am to meet Julia or Jeanette and find out about membership and activities.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to keep up to date with developments.

Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival
