Welcome to the Heart of Brabant Event

welcome-eventby Yolonda van Riel

We had another beautiful day on September 24, 2016 for our annual Welcome Event that officially opens our club year! This year’s theme was the Puishaven Quest where we had to search the area for answers to questions about the many sights and scenes around the Puishaven in Tilburg.

To start the afternoon, everyone gathered at the eclectic HeAVENs Kitchen for coffee and apple pie as we were welcomed to the city by Tilburg’s vice mayor, Erik de Ridder. After the warm welcome, we divided up into teams and headed out for the adventure! As the teams made their way back to the final destination, Undici Keukens, (some still with chocolate on their face from the free bon bon at Huize Geers Chocolatier!) they were welcomed by a cold beverage and turned in their answer sheets. We had a lot of fun socializing at Undici while enjoying drinks and snacks provided by the biological restaurant, Eethuis Twentig while waiting for the winners to be announced. The winning team was “Team Ellis” and each team member received a gift certificate for ice cream at Porto Koffie en Ijs – an adorable little shop in the Puishaven selling specialty coffee and ice cream.

We ended the afternoon with the grand prize drawing of a 50 euro gift certificate to restaurant Bij Vermeer. It was a great afternoon meeting new people, catching up with old friends and just having fun!

President’s Message, Oct. 2016

From Yolonda van Riel

Yolonda van RielThe TIC board is hard at work planning many fun events for you this season and can hardly wait to get started! To add a “twist” to the events this year, we are asking members to plan some of the events (with our help of course). The first one will be a borrel hosted by Coree Freeman and I can’t wait to sit back and enjoy an event as a member!!

We will also be stepping up our marketing and recruitment this year in hopes of reaching even more internationals – not only to expand our member base but to add more fun to the mix! You can help out as well by spreading the word about TIC and the many diverse things the club has to offer expats and internationals.

On another note, I would also like to welcome Mala Raman back to the board. Mala will be taking over the role previously held by Thijs Busser as well as spearheading membership development. We thank Thijs for his valuable contribution as well as Mala for stepping in to fill this position.

Welcome back TIC members and I hope to see you (and a friend) at a TIC event soon!!
