What a whirlwind of activity and changes we had during this club season! We visited museums, went on city tours, attended a real German Christmas market and had a wonderful art presentation! Those were only some of the fun things we enjoyed next to our regular events like borrels, book club and movie night!
There were also some significant board changes this year. An Event Team (led by Jessica Lipe-Swart together with Molly Johnson and Anne-Lise Artaud) was added to help alleviate some of the workload as well as offer even more diverse activities.
Estela Highet Garcia will be replacing Betty Wangsawidjaja as Treasurer. Anne van Oorschot, founder of the club and who currently holds the position of board secretary, is also stepping down from the board. Melissa Donders was voted in unanimously during our AGM as our new club secretary. I want to personally thank Anne and Betty for all they have done for the club. They started out as my fellow club and board members but I’m happy that true friendships have developed along the way. Also, I want to welcome our new board members and wish them lots of success and fun in their new positions!
TIC is also celebrating its ten-year club anniversary this year and preparation has already begun for a celebration to coincide with our annual Welcome Event coming up after the summer break. It is indeed busy but exciting times for your club. So … wherever your travels may take you this summer, I wish you warm, sunny weather but most of all wonderful, memorable moments with family and friends!
