Special Announcement

As we announced last week, Connie is leaving us and is stepping down as President of RL after a very successful year in post. She is heading home and we wish her and Philip a safe and happy relocation to Scotland.

We are, nonetheless, delighted to welcome Beth Beggs as the new candidate for President of Ranches Ladies. Beth was introduced to us all at the social morning on Tuesday.  Beth has lived in Dubai for many years, bringing up her family and working here, and is looking forward to the new challenge of running RL with the willing assistance of the RL committee and and the unstinting help offered by our Honorary President, Carole.

Thank you Beth for taking on the role and we look forward to a very successful Presidency. RL is in safe hands.

Volunteers

Thank you to everyone who has offered to help out and volunteer some of their time to keep RL running.  Gretha has offered to be RL mail box manager, Liz to manage the Circles Mailbox, Jackie is the Circles Coordinator, Anne is RL Treasurer, Alex for room set up, Shelley for discounts, Carole to temporarily man the Circles table and Karen and Jo for Meet and Greet. Ladies, thank you for your offers to help and we look forward to welcoming you to the team.

Please speak to any member of the committee about helping out as all these roles work better if they have assistants. If you can assist in any of these positions or want to help the web/FB coordinator and the Programme Manager or to explore any of the ways you can help this wonderful organisation, Ranches Ladies, please speak to any member of the committee.

Announcements

We would like to wish Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim members and your families. May you have a happy and joyful Eid al Fitr.

RL Social Morning was graced on Tuesday by award winning UAE author and storyteller Julia Johnson. She kept everyone entertained by her stories of living in Dubai since 1975, the inspiration for her many successful books.

Her books are used in schools across the UAE to teach children about the real Arabian Gulf but her books are loved for their depiction of local characters. Thank you Julia for a super presentation.

The Quilters received a lovely thank you message from Elsbeth Bentley, breast care nurse at Mediclinic City Hospital, for the bags, the cushions and safety belt cushioned protectors they made for cancer sufferers.

Elsbeth said “I just wanted to say a very big thank you to you lovely ladies at the Ranches Ladies Quilter’s Circle…..You are clearly a very talented, as well as kind and thoughtful, bunch of ladies, and the little ticket with the name on is really lovely, the kindness of strangers is deeply touching. It is  rare to receive a gift that is both practical and pretty when you are about to have surgery for cancer and these really hit the mark.  I will be honoured to pass these on to my patients who I know will be delighted with them.” Thank you to the Quilters.

Many circles will be finishing for the summer break soon, although many will continue informally through June, July and August.  Please speak to your Circle Leaders to confirm the actual dates and especially when the circle will restart in September.

May 28th 2019: Julia Johnson
Children’s Author, Storyteller and Performer
Julia Johnson is a treasure trove of folklore and facts on the UAE and, having lived in the country since 1975, these nuggets of knowledge have naturally found a place in the books she’s written for children over the years. She has written 16 books, including critically acclaimed The Pearl Diver,  and Julia’s book The Secret of the Cave won best International Children’s book at the Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival last week. Her goal is to teach us about the real people of the UAE.
Special Announcement

Very sadly, Connie announced at the RL Social Morning that she and her husband, Philip, are relocating with his job back to Edinburgh.  We are all truly sorry to say goodbye to Connie. Connie has celebrated one year as RL President and what a year it has been. Under Connie’s guidance RL has had some fantastic Tuesday morning events, great attendance figures, a hugely successful Christmas Bazaar and she focussed on RL’s role in helping to support Al Ihsan with donations and last week a cheque for 35000 Dhs.

Thank you, Connie, for taking on the role of RL President and for guiding RL into the future with great kindness and care. We will miss you very much but wish you all the best in your future adventures in Scotland.

RL Tuesday Social Morning

 Our Social Morning will meet this week from 9.30-12 noon in Baker Finch Room at Arabian Ranches Golf Club. Please note the programme starts at 10.30 am.
May 14th 2019: Hayet Zerelli

Come and meet Hayet, the RL vice president and jewellery maker, and bring any broken jewellery you would like her to fix or jewellery you would like to adapt to give it a new lease of life. She will also bring a selection of her own magnificent jewellery for us to admire.

Announcements

We would like to wish Ramadan Kareem to all our Muslim members and your families. May you have a blessed and peaceful Holy Month.

This week at the RL Tuesday social morning we welcomed the talented team from Rachna Salon who applied free henna designs to the Ranches Ladies. Their artistry is incredible and we also discovered some of the history of this beautiful tradition and marvelled at their gorgeous designs. Rachna has become a recognized henna and beauty brand with over 70 locations across the region but find them nearby at Motor City near Spinneys.

Next Tuesday 21st May we are delighted to host a Make Up Masterclass using Flormar Cosmetics, a leading Turkish make up brand, by one of their head make up artists. This is an incredible opportunity to see a professional make up artist at work and to learn a new quick make up look for the summer. There will be giveaways too! Make sure you come along to the social morning next week for this not to be missed occasion.

Goodbyes

With regret we have to say goodbye and thank you to 2 valuable RL members, Lorna and Jenny. Lorna has been a stalwart and enthusiastic member of RL and has given her time and energy to decorating the room for Tuesday social mornings, she has organised parties, lunches and has arranged meet ups with neighbours for new members and always been a great support to the committee. Thank you Lorna for all your fun and hard work.

Jenny recently joined the committee but is sadly standing down as Circles Leader as she is leaving Dubai in the summer. She kindly picked up the role from Angela and has introduced 2 new very successful Circles since she started. Thank you Jenny.  We give you both all our best wishes and wish you good luck in the next chapters of your lives.

This means we now have vacancies in three areas, Discounts Manager, Treasurer and Circles Leader.  Please speak to Connie or any member of the committee about these roles and to explore how you can help this wonderful organisation, Ranches Ladies.

This week we welcome Yvonne Stoop.  Yvonne is the national title holder of the 2018 Goldwell Hairstylist Competition. Yvonne has been working at the high end Dubai Institution ‘Salon Ink’ based in Umm Sequeim 2 for almost 7 years.  Ladies, we are in for a treat.

This article from Time Out Dubai says it all…  “she expertly works her magic, which touches everything from colour to cuts. She’s a deft hand at applying natural-looking balayage and not the type to push conversation on clients, expertly gauging whether you’re a flat-out chatterer or prefer to relax. The salon itself is famed for its avant garde styles (leopard print buzz cut, anyone?) and recently, blue ombre hair.”

Announcements

On Tuesday 23rd April it was our 2019 Ranches Ladies AGM.  RL President Connie gave a short speech celebrating 13 years of our fabulous club and a recap of all the activities and outings you can enjoy with membership of RL. The circles, outings, entertainment and friendships are made possible by membership of Ranches Ladies.

CDA Inspector Musead Mohamed Alblooshi attended the AGM and stayed for the whole morning, chatting to the members, viewing our Circles’ display and experiencing the fun of an RL social morning. He helped us celebrate the successful conclusion to Connie’s 1st year as President. Thank you Connie for all your time, effort and enthusiasm for Ranches Ladies.  2019 has been a great year so far.

Also joining us for the morning were the ladies from TransformBody Ladies Centre in Motor City.  During the morning they offered nail polish change, head and shoulders massage and mini Dermalogica facials.  TLC gave vouchers and goodies to lucky on the spot quiz winners.

Come along to Oasis Fashion in Wafi Mall between 10-1pm on Sunday 28th April for a morning of special discounts for RL members.  Angela will show us her new stock and help us to  get our summer wardrobe sorted out.

We had a wonderful morning viewing the treasures of Saudi Arabia and the Aga Khan’s incredible collection of Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels Art Deco vanity boxes. Finally we had a great talk about the amazing trade in pearls between France and the Gulf states in the early twentieth century.

We were also offered this great advice, soak your pearls overnight in water from time to time to rehydrate them. This can improve their lustre!
