Ranches Ladies Newsletter

Good Morning Ranches Ladies. Have a great week ahead.

Panini-making Workshop at Larte

Last Tuesday 9th May, Ranches Ladies enjoyed a special Panini-making Workshop at Larte, Studio One Hotel. Guest chef Francesco Arena taught the ladies how to make delicious variations of Italian bread.

Thank you to Chef Francesco and the team at Larte for a fantastic morning.

Tuesdays at Larte

Ranches Ladies are meeting every Tuesday morning at Larte, Studio One Hotel in Studio City, 10.30am to 12 midday. Join us for tea or coffee and a chat. You can also join or renew your RL membership and find out about activities on offer.

Volunteer Needed

We urgently require a volunteer to coordinate discounts for Ranches Ladies.

The Discount Coordinator role involves communicating with current and potential new discount partners from time to time, to keep the discounts updated. It will not be a large time commitment.

If you can help or would like more information please email ranches.ladies@gmail.com

Newsletter Contributions

What can you share with other RL members? Let us know what you have been doing in your circles group or other RL events, recommend places to visit in and around Dubai, or anything else.

We need short (200-300 word) articles for this newsletter, with photos if possible. It would be great to have an article for each week’s newsletter.

Please email any items for the newsletter to ranches.ladies@gmail.com before midday on Friday for inclusion in the next Monday’s newsletter.
