Treasurer Needed

 

This is an urgent appeal for someone to assume the role of RL treasurer.  Very sadly our current treasurer, Anne, is leaving UAE to return to Scotland and we need to find a replacement. RL has an accountant to draw up the RL accounts but we need someone to handle petty cash, oversee our banking and keep the chequebook. It is not an onerous role, RL is a non profit making organisation, and would suit someone with experience of handling the accounts of small voluntary clubs like a PTA or scout troops. Experience is not essential!

Please email Hayet, our RL president, to discuss the role and see if it could be for you on ranches.ladies@gmail.com

Art Circle

 

 

Elizabeth our circle leader has sent a message of thanks to the members of the art circle who have shared their art work throughout the lockdown and given us all something to enjoy.  Elizabeth is hoping to return to UK soon.  This is a painting of Rita’s grandson

 

Quilting

 

Sara has completed this traditional Card Trick quilt and has even had a go at “stitch in the ditch” quilting.  Quilters have thoroughly enjoyed being able to quilt uninterrupted for 3 months!

 

Rags to Riches

 

 

Anne and Jeannette have been spending a lot of time crocheting these mask mates.  This was an enjoyable pastime for Anne while she has been at the hospital with Hugh and is hugely appreciated by hospital staff
