October’s borrel was held at Burgemeester Jansen on the Puishaven. The pub was very lively andhad a real local feel on this Friday evening! We had a small but talkative group and enjoyed getting our weekend started over a cold beverage (or two) and some yummy snacks. It was a great way to kick off the weekend!

If you’ve never joined us for a borrel, you are missing out on a fun and relaxing way to start the weekend. Check the website for the location of next month’s borrel and join us … the first drink is always on TIC!!

One of our members says “farewell!”

Moving On?

As with most international clubs, it is the nature of the member population that people come and go as their work and personal lives
change and grow.  As such, we would love the opportunity to say a proper “goodbye” to anyone who may be leaving the club.  If you are moving on, please do let us know so we can bid you a fond farewell (and take you off that pesky mailing list!;)
