My dear club members

As this is the last newsletter you will receive from me, I took the liberty of addressing you as "My" club members. I know that you do not "belong" to me, but during the years of my presidency you have become close to my heart. 

When, after 48 years,  I retired from my wonderful, exciting and very challenging position in the exotic and dynamic world of tourism, everyone who knew me, first and foremost my husband Kurt, thought I would just die of boredom!  

I was so lucky that, at that time, my wonderful Doctor told me to take off my watch and just "let the day flow by and the mind flow like water".

This great piece of advice worked wonderfully for a number of months until I was asked if I would like to become President of the Anglo-Swiss Club Locarno.  I then had to put my watch back on!

You, my dear club members, trusted me with the future of our club and so I threw myself into this new and exciting challenge body and soul.

Four years later I can say  " I had the time of my life" and you honoured me time and time again with your attendance at the various events, I organized. From the Auction to Halloween, from the Carnival of Venice to our Prosecco and Panettone in the Parco della Pace and many other events we did have great fun!

The coffee mornings were always such joyful affairs and our film afternoons "Oldies but Goldies" bought together the aficionados of glorious, timeless films.

Our walks and outings, discovering the beauty and the culture of our wonderful Canton Ticino, also helped us bond.

Our latest special event "Everything is better with bubbles", was a great success and we are so very lucky to have such talented and knowledgeable members in our club.

The various dinners, teas, brunches, fish & chips etc., to name some of our activities, always a delight, but quite a challenge to find restaurants and venues ready to cater to such a large group and also offer good quality at an affordable price. But ultimately we found the venues and we always enjoyed the time we spent together.

So, "My" dear club members from the bottom of my heart


I will remember these years with great pleasure and I know that we will remain friends. I will continue to attend the club activities and if you wish to stay in touch with me, you will find all you need on the membership list.

As I will have to write the President's report at the end of the club year, I will then thank the various people who helped and dedicated their time to the club.
