Dear Club members
The Anglo-Swiss Club Locarno season 2019-2020 started on Saturday, 31 August 2019 with the traditional coffee morning. It was a great turnout. 50 members attended and we were indeed overwhelmed. It was a lovely occasion and the perfect moment to honour Mrs Pauline Haffter for her years of dedication and very hard work to the library. We can honestly say that it was a labour of love.
Gabi Cruise, President of the FASC also visited us. She came all the way from Lausanne just to spend some time with us and she was happy to give us some news on what the FASC is all about. We would like to thank Gabi and hope she will join us on another occasion.
Nothing nicer than a refreshing glass of bubbles! Our "Meet the President" aperitif at the clubroom on Wednesday, 4 September 2019 was another successful event. 35 members attended and there was much fun and laughter. We will certainly repeat this event!
To finish off the first week we had our "Technology with Gonzalo" course on Saturday, 7 September in the clubroom. We had space for 16 members and we were fully booked! A fresh and modern approach to technology. Gonzalo is willing to continue with this course and we really want him to! We will start working on some new dates!
We are now looking forward to our opening dinner on Friday, 13 September 2019 at the Hotel La Palma au Lac. 46 members have registered. We are sure that it will be a lovely event and a nice chance to catch-up and meet old and new friends.
I will not be writing every week, but I did want to let you all know that the club year started well and I promise to try to keep you all busy!
