President’s Monthly Message


Dear Ladies

Most of you are back now from your vacation and we now have over 100 paid up members to date for the year 2017-2018.   We started the month with a  vacation quiz. Ranches ladies vacationed all over the world and tried some unusual activities.  Next we had Gayle Powell introducing us to her ‘Singing Circle’. The ladies had such a good time  and 21 came to her first singing circle meeting last week, the most we’ve ever had at a first meeting of any new circle.

Then we finished the month with a wonderful Circles Morning organised by Angela our Circle Co-ordinator. The Circle Leaders did a great job of decorating their tables and the Quilting Circle won the prize for the best decorated table.  83 ladies attended the event and signed up for several circles each it seemed. The Scottish dancers danced a jig to show off their newly acquired dancing skills and Mariana had us try out simple yoga exercises to do on the aeroplane or office to keep us fit.  Enjoy all your new activities ladies.  The newly revived Poetry Circle started again this month and Lorna’s Lunching Out circle had an astonishing 36 ladies sign up for it.  Guess what our favourite activity is?

Allison organised a special trip to see the Dubai Opera House which is newly opened for tours.  It’s a great tour for your visitors.  We were shown all over for nearly two hours and finished off with lunch at the rooftop Sean Connery Restaurant (with many of the waiters as handsome as Sean Connery) where we enjoyed a delicious meal.  Do give it a try. It’s open for lunch and dinner.

Our team on a Tuesday morning with Room Setup led by Lorna have given the Baker Finch Room a fresh new look with flowers on the tables and lovely decorated posters everywhere. It’s such a pleasure to enter the room and to be greeted by friendly welcoming faces as well from our Meet and Greet ladies.

See you soon and remember to bring a friend with you to our meetings. Our motto is ‘New Friendships Start Here’.
