Christmas 2017 Message from our Director

Dear Members,
We started the new club year with a wonderful Welcome Back Luncheon at the lovely Merion Cricket Club together with a visiting group of our WCI Executive Board Members, staying Philadelphia for an executive meeting. Writing these lines for the newsletter, I am realizing how few weeks are still left fort his year. By now, you all should have received an invitation for our Holiday Party, this year once more at the lovely St. Davids Golf Club in Wayne. I hope many of you will sign up to make sure you are celebrating this very nice, festive event with your fellow club members and their partners.
We all know, this time of year is filled with a lot of celebrations, festivities, and family time, no matter which holiday you celebrate. This is a time of sharing, of reaching across the artificial divides in our society of race, religion, political beliefs, and social status. It is a fact that most people see this time of year as one of the more joyous holidays, where they have fun days, filled with love, gift sharing, eating, fun-times and laughs.                                     
But it also represents good will towards others, caring, kindness and helping others less fortune. That is why we will once more have a raffle organized for this event, with beautiful prizes you can win. It will make you and others happy and creates joy, maybe all over the world. Please also make it a priority this holiday season to find some downtime, which
allows time for reflection and gives new ideas which might lead to new chances.

I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year filled with Peace and Happiness.

Happy Holidays

Dear Fellow Members,

We just had our Annual Welcome Back Luncheon at Amada and all of a sudden the Holidays are right in front of us! I almost can’t believe it. It seems the months are flying faster and faster.

As you already know, we will start the Holiday Season with a party at the St. Davids Golf Club and I hope many of you signed up and made sure you are celebrating this very nice, festive event with your fellow club members and their partners.

We all know, this time of year is filled with numerous celebrations, festivities, and family time, no matter which holiday you celebrate. For most people this time of year is the most joyous season. They have wonderful days, filled with love, gift giving, eating, fun-times and laughs. But it also represents good will towards others, caring, kindness and helping others who are less fortunate. It makes you and others happy and creates joy all over the world. Make it a priority this holiday season to find some downtime to allow for reflection, give thought to new ideas that lead to new chances.

I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays, the very best for the new year and I hope to see you all back refreshed next year.

Helga Ruus-Neubert
