yet another year has passed in the world and 4 months in the new year of International Circling and it is time for yet another newsletter. We have put a video presentation in this version of the newsletter – let us know if you like it or not.
The international board has had their 2 board meeting in November in Vienna – wow that is a city to visit and what wonderful ladies.
We have also chartered Malta – amazing experience and again a beautiful island and great ladies.
In this newsletter you can read news from some of our member countries. I think the articles are very inspiring and please share with us if you have any news you would like to share with the members across the world.
We have already heard of several countries being active in the Number Club Exchange and at the Benelux meeting there was a lot of ideas for a simple event to do for the Charity March. They suggested to do a WALK WITH FAMILIES – no entrance fee – home baked cake and coffee and each member gives 10 Euros (eg.) for Little Big Help or another charity…. I think it is a great idea.
Enjoy your reading and see you soon
Ladies Circle International
The Re-Charter of Ladies Circle Malta.
Our first meeting was held on the first Wednesday of July 2015. Since then it’s been one big roller coaster to reach our goal, that is to Re-Charter Ladies Circle Malta.
June 2016 we handed in our Application to the LCI Board and the preparations for our big day commenced. Round Table Malta as well as Club 41 Melita were thrilled with the idea for us to Re-Charter during their AGM meeting. Working together was such a great experience, with our fresh ideas and with the Tablers expertise we planned out a Super weekend.
Thursday 27th October the three clubs met up at the...
We have such a great program this year at Ladies’ Circle France !!!
How exciting ??? You don’t know ? You really don’t?
Very easy : many Charters’ events throughout the year!
Since the beginning of the year, we have already chartered two new Circles : Ladies’ Circle 75 Sens in September, Ladies’ Circle 72 La Rochelle in October and Ladies’ Circle 78 Pornichet Côte d’ Amour in November. Why such a passion in France ? Read all about it her
LC Madagascar 15th Charter Anniversary
This November 10th, LC Madagascar has celebrated its 15th charter anniversary along with LCM1 and LCM2 15th anniversary charters who were both chartered in a row. In 2001, I was there with my club and we tried to do our best to make this poinsettia (our national emblem) blooming.
It took some time but now, believe it or not! LC Madagascar is having another club in formation, named LC 6 in formation. Their charter is due in April 2017, hopefully along with our national AGM.
Sounds like the LCI Membership Trophy wants to stay in the Red Island…
Two years ago, Ladies Circle International took an important step towards the West. When two friends decided to invest their time to plan and launch Ladies Circle in the United States, they had no idea how far they would go in such short period of time.
Ladies Circle USA (LCUSA) hosted its first meeting in the end of 2014 for a handful of ladies interested in knowing more about this new adventure. Since then, Ladies Circle 1 New York (LC1NY), the first Circle to be chartered in the United States, reached over fifteen active members and another bunch of prospective members.
19th November 2016 – 1st BeNeLux Meeting Ladies’ Circle International
At the home hosting party in Cape Town Caroline and I were sitting at the same table and we had an interesting discussion about the differences in Circling in our countries. While eating delicious worms and having fun we thought of bringing our board members together for a meeting. Joyce and Veerle from LC Belgium told me that Round Table Belgium was organising a Benelux meeting with the national boards of RT Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg. So if the guys can do it, why shouldn’t we?
LC Iceland MTM meeting was held over the weekend of October 14th and 15th in a small town east of Akureyri called Húsavík. LC5 and RT4 hosted the meetings and did a great job. For few years now LC and RT in Iceland have held joint MTM every second year and joint AGM every year. Everybody arrived on Friday and the agenda started with a party where the theme was pink and fabulous. On Saturday our meeting started at 10:00 in a small restaurant called Salka, 63 LC women from all around Iceland attended the meeting.
