President’s Message – November 2020

Tilburg International Club goodie bag

Yolonda van Riel
President
Tilburg International Club

Like most of you, I have been working from home for what seems like an eternity. I can barely remember what my desk looks like or how long the commute is from home to office. I close my laptop in the early evening and take the long journey of three steps from work to home. What I miss most is the interaction with my family, friends, colleagues, and social activities at local eating and drinking establishments. With everything going on (or not going on may be a better way of stating it!), I am very excited that we have been able to arrange almost all of our tic activities online!Your board has been meeting virtually and working very hard to transition our planned in-person activities to fun, on-line experiences. We are learning a lot about technology as well – lol!

As our world is changing due to the pandemic, it is vital to our mental well-being to interact with each other and keep up-to-date on how everyone is coping. I’m trying to keep a glass half-full attitude by being thankful for good health, the ability to keep working and knowing that I am part of a great group of fellow board members dedicated to finding ways to keep our expat community connected, engaged and offering innovative ways to enjoy some social interaction. I hope you will join us for some of the upcoming fun and unique things we have planned. Your board is looking forward to seeing you at a virtual event soon!

20 Jun 2020. 2020 has been an unusual year, and our annual picnic was a bit different this year as well- but still a very fun get-together and pleasant way to spend a beautiful weekend afternoon.

We were all thankful that conditions have improved in the Netherlands such that we could meet up again and socialize in a group.  It was great to catch up with fellow tíc members and even meet a new family to tíc!
