International Lunch Circle

Ai Ling hosted a wonderful traditional Thanksgiving lunch at her home, assisted by Yvonne and Sue, for the International Festival Lunch Circle. Ai Ling’s husband is from Virginia and she learned the recipes from his family. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and were told the Thanksgiving story by Ai Ling’s two children George and Alexandra. The lunch was followed by some party games and Carole recited two poems about the first Thanksgiving and the arrival of the pilgrims in America. We finished by decorating chocolate cupcakes with Thanksgiving colours. The room was decorated with a Thanksgiving theme and we wore either autumn colours or the red, white and blue of the American flag.

Volunteers are required to host or help with future lunches based around International Festivals.

Enjo Coffee Morning Presentation on 1st November

On Tuesday 1st November at Larte, Studio One Hotel, HALO Middle East who make Enjo environmentally friendly cleaning products gave a talk on reducing toxins in the home.

Don’t forget, Ranches Ladies members get a 10% discount for  on Enjo products. Show membership card or use code RLENJO www.enjo.com

New RL member, Avril, has shared her impressions of the coffee morning presentation.

ENJO – a cleaning system that protects the environment

by Avril Erskine

On Tuesday, I had a fantastic introduction to the Ranches Ladies membership at the ENJO presentation. Who knew a presentation on cleaning systems could be so interesting? The ENJO team had me hooked with their sustainability and clean air agendas. It confirmed to me what I’ve instinctively known for a while, that back to basic cleaning with water, lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda water is the way to go. Add to that the magic ENJO sponges, all-purpose cleaning cloths, mop pads and home-made orange blossom air-freshener, and I’m now convinced that it’s time to go all in. There’s even a tutorial on how to optimise the products and clean effectively, thrown in.

Thanks to Josephine’s enviable powers of organisation and liaison, there was an impressive turn-out of women on the morning and a buzz in the air. The perfect audience and network for ENJO, I would say, particularly, given their past membership of Ranches Ladies. Everywhere I turned there was a great conversation to be had and Studio One was the perfect venue.

One of the charms of the presentation was a number of impromptu contributions from customers who had discovered ENJO years earlier and could attest to the value and integrity of the products. Also, the presenter, Diane’s story about the effect of chemicals on her health and how she was able to turn this around was really an extraordinary testimony. It’s always great to hear about the genesis of a good business idea and how it transitions into being. All of the above has convinced me to give it a try.

It was a fantastic inaugural event for this new member. I already feel I’m getting great value from joining Ranches Ladies. More like this please!

Circles Coffee Morning

The Circles Coffee Morning last Tuesday was a great success. Many existing and new RL members came along to find out about all the activities on offer, with many signing up to join circle groups.

Many thanks to Jackie, Josephine, Hayet, other committee members and all the Circle Leaders who helped in setting up and organising the event, and to Larte Restaurant at Studio One Hotel for hosting us.

Tuesday Mornings

Ranches Ladies are meeting every Tuesday morning for coffee at Larte Restaurant in Studio One Hotel, Studio City (across the roundabout from the back entrance of Arabian Ranches 1) from 10.30am – 12pm.

Please note, there are roadworks and road closures in the area of the 2 roundabouts which connect the back exit of Arabian Ranches to Studio City and Motor City and it is not possible to cross over directly to Studio City. Probably the best routes to reach Studio One Hotel from Arabian Ranches are via D61 (Hessa Street) or D54. More details of suggested routes have been sent on the RL members WhatsApp group.

Good Morning Ranches Ladies. Hope you have a great week.

 Wishes & Dreams

Rajul Chander, one of the Poetry Circle members and leader of the Art Circle, has written a beautiful poem on the theme of the last Poetry Circle meeting: ‘Wishes and Dreams’

When I was a little girl, everything in future looked like a dream 

To dress well and look good was a dream 

To get married to Prince Charming was a dream 

To have beautiful kids was a dream 

To be rich was a dream 

To go for a fancy holiday was a dream 

So many dreams!!! 

Now I have lived through all these phases 

Dressed in satin, silk and laces 

Been to places breathtakingly divine 

Seen mountains, lakes and tasted the best of wine 

Married a man who is a thorough gentleman 

And lived a beautiful life one possibly can 

Had two kids who are bright, loving and kind 

A matter of pride any mother would find 

Enough money to buy all that I wish 

From fine clothes, jewels, to my favorite dish 

All my dreams come true, I have seen 

Yet everything around me looks mundane and routine 

Now I am searching for a more meaningful life 

Than just having all I wished, and still be in strife 

A heaven on earth where people are generous and kind 

Where hearts are filled with love and people have a beautiful mind 

Nothing to fear and there is no hate 

Where everyone is dear and all feel great 

In such a world I wish to live 

Each at his best and each willing to give 

If everyone decides to be true and kind 

Heaven on earth we can find

Ranches Ladies cannot run without the valuable work of our members who volunteer as board, committee members or helping out in other roles.

We still urgently need volunteers for 2 roles:

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

Web-team members – to help post to Social Media, respond to messages or update the website.

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.
