Suggestions for tíc Volunteer Activities!

Volunteertíc has set a goal to support a different charity every year whether by fundraising, event participation or volunteer work. This past June, tíc chose to support the charity Nacht van de Vluchteling (Night of the Refugees). A small of group of tíc members not only participated in the event by walking a 20 km route, they also raised a total €950 for the foundation

tíc is currently looking for a good cause to support for our 2019-2020 club year. If you would like to make a suggestion or have a good idea for us to look into, please let us know!

President’s Summer Send-off – July 2019

I’m sitting with my laptop outside enjoying this beautiful Dutch weather (no – I’m not kidding!) and reflecting on what an amazing club season we enjoyed.

We started with our best ever attended Welcome to Tilburg event to commemorate tíc’s 10th anniversary and finished up with another tícnic where everyone left full of good food and drink ready to start the summer!

And, in between those two fantastic events, we squeezed in borrels, sporting events, arts and crafts, walks, games and a whole lot more. One new addition to our agenda, was a charity walk to help refugees. It was a wonderful way for us to give back to those who aren’t as fortunate and, as a result, the board has decided to look for ways to raise money for a different charity every year. We haven’t made our final selection yet, so if you have ideas or causes that you feel passionate about, let us know. As your club continues to grow and flourish, so does the need to give back to those who could use a helping hand.

We are quite fortunate to enjoy the expat life and freely explore all that the world has to offer! I hope you take some pleasant memories of this past club season along with you as you embark on your summer adventures and I look forward to welcoming you all back in September!!

Wishing you sunny days,

Yolonda

President’s message – May 2019

Spring is in the air! As the flowers begin to bloom and daylight stays with us into the evening hours, everyone just seems to be in better spirits. Although the club year will soon be coming to a close, there are still lots of things on the calendar to enjoy.

Your Events Team has done an outstanding job in their first season of bringing new, exciting things to the club calendar. And coming up, we have the ever-popular Pub Quiz to accompany our AGM, a gathering at the Tilburg Hap Stap Festival at the Interpolis, our annual tícnic, plus a sponsorship walking event, Nacht van de Vluchtelingen, to help refugees.

I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at an event soon to hear about you upcoming plans for the summer.  So, let’s get some fresh air and have some club fun together before the lazy days of summer arrive!!

Cheers,
Yolonda

Guests are Welcome!

welcome-banner

Guests are always welcome at any #TilburgInternationalClub event. It’s a great way to get a feel for the club, our members and the types of events you can come to expect as a member.  In the past, many of our guests have become members after a full tíc experience!

Many expats feel, even after living in the Netherlands for a longer period of time, never fully welcomed into Dutch society and therefore, never feel an affinity with the culture. A key upside to being a guest of tíc, is getting out to meet locals, learning about the country, better understanding social routines and customs all within a supportive group of individuals and families with like circumstances.

Want to know more about attending a tíc event as a guest? Check out our Guests Welcome page for more details.  Have questions or already interested in one of our upcoming events? Just let us know at til.int.club@gmail.com!

We look forward to meeting you!
