Ranches Ladies Newsletter

Extra Newsletter with Special Announcements

Good Morning Ranches Ladies.

Belated Eid Al Adha to all who celebrate this festival.

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend.

Enjoy your summer, whatever you are doing.

Changes to Ranches Ladies Board Membership

Our long standing board members Liz stark, Julia Handley and Jeannette Entwistle are stepping down to move on to other endeavours. We would like to thank Liz, Julia and Jeanette for all their fantastic work over the years and their contributions to the tremendous growth of Ranches Ladies.

On behalf of Ranches ladies I would like to wish them all the best in their new adventures. Hayet Zerelli (RL President).

Election of New Board Members

We have 3 new proposed board members:

Carole Anne Binbrek – for Vice President
Jane Hennessy – for Director of Events
Lynne Haboubi – for Director of Wellbeing

All Ranches Ladies members will soon receive an email regarding the election of the new board members.

If you are in agreement there is no need to reply to the email. Please reply to this message only if you have an objection to the proposed board members.

If we don’t hear from you we will count you as a YES vote.

More Volunteers Needed!

Ranches Ladies cannot run without the valuable work of our members who volunteer in various roles. All our board and committee members are volunteers.

There are some other roles where we urgently need some extra help:

Membership Coordinators – to help sign up new members and maintain membership list.

RL Email Coordinators – to check and respond to emails.

Web-team Members – to help with posting to Social Media and responding to messages.

If you have any spare time and would like to find out how you can help, please email ranches.ladies@gmail.com or send a message on the RL members WhatsApp Group.

Tuesday Mornings

Any Ranches Ladies who are in Dubai over the summer are welcome to meet on Tuesday mornings for coffee and chat at Larte Restaurant in Studio One Hotel, Studio City (across the roundabout from the back entrance of Arabian Ranches 1) from 10.30am – 12pm. As many people are travelling, please check on RL members WhatsApp group before going to Larte. To join the Ranches Ladies Whatsapp group if you are a member, please email ranches.ladies@gmail.com

Get writing over the summer!

If you have time over the summer, please consider writing a short (200 to 300 words) article, with photos if possible, to be included in this newsletter when it returns. Maybe you could write about your summer travels, your Circle groups or any other topics you think would be of interest to other RL members.

If you would like to contribute please email arladiesdubai@gmail.com
