Special Announcement from Carole:

Dear Ladies,

I resigned as President of Ranches Ladies on Wed 28th August 2018 after leading it for nearly 14 years this coming December. I have enjoyed all the years working with the dedicated committee and board members, with the circle leaders, with committee assistants of all kinds and with probably thousands of members who have passed through my hands. It has been a tremendous experience for me and I have made many many wonderful friendships through this club.

I will still be an active club member running my Scottish Dance, Poetry and hopefully Knitting and Storytelling circles and belonging to several others. I wish whoever is announced as new President on Tuesday as wonderful experience as I have had and I wish all the past and present members of Ranches Ladies an enjoyable future together

Carole
