Ranches Ladies Newsletter

Good morning Ranches Ladies. Have a great week.

Ranches Ladies is 16 years old!

Ranches Ladies is celebrating our 16th anniversary this month!  It all started in December 2004 when I handed out a small flyer to ladies in the community – which resulted in around 30 ladies meeting at Costa’s in the Arabian Ranches shopping centre.  In January 2005 we moved to the Arabian Ranches Golf Club which became our home for the next 14 years. We held Tuesday meetings with invited speakers, as well as many circle activities and regular trips organised.  

Our first committee was formed in September 2005 with 9 ladies volunteering to be committee members. We came under the wing of the CDA (Community Development Authority) in 2012 and now have an annual license from them. I resigned 3 years ago and now Hayet Zerelli, who was my Vice President for several years, is the President.  Connie Wheeler was the President for one year after me and then Beth Beggs – who sadly had to resign due to ill health. 

In previous years, Ranches Ladies have raised funds for Al Ihsan in Ajman to help with school fees for destitute children. The Quilters Circle joined with us in 2012.  Currently we have over 200 members and our Tuesday coffee mornings are held in Studio One Hotel at 10.30am in Larte Italian restaurant. It is great to see Ranches Ladies going strong, even with the challenges and constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carole Binbrek, Honorary Life President Ranches Ladies.
