Christmas Dinner Meeting 4th December

By now, Members will have received their invite for the meeting in December from Eleanor – please respond by 30th November whether you are able to come or not – and if you are bringing any guests if you are coming.

If you are not a member but would like to come along, please send an email to our secretary to register hklcsecretary@gmail.com

For $250 you will have a lovely 3 course Christmas Dinner, with a vegetarian option, lots of fun with the activities we have lined up, take part in the Secret Santa gift swap and much much more…

A couple of points for the December meeting:

- Please bring a Secret Santa gift to the value of $100-$150, please let your guests know also

- If you can bring a table decoration for the dinner tables, that will be great (please advise the social team if you can bring one hklcsocial@gmail.com)

- We will be having a Christmas Raffle too, we don’t usually on a Christmas meeting but as we missed having one in November due to our highly successful Box oh Hope packing night, we decided to hold one in December

- We will be collecting new wrapped toys for the ABC Toy collection – please label whether for girl or boy

- We will also be making up a hamper to give to the Crossroads Foundation for their staff, so please bring any food items, drinks but not alcohol.

We look forward to seeing you there for our Christmas festivities!

Pedal Kart 2014

Well done to all those involved in the weekends event, Hong Kong Round Table Pedal Kart 2014, the volunteers, racers, spectators etc.

If you take a look at the Facebook page for the Pedal Kart, you’ll find lots of photos and results posted by Round Table.

Thank you to all the ladies from LCHK who volunteered their time over the weekend too, either for set up, marshalling, manning the Ladies Circle booth and all other areas – well done ladies!

Early estimates from Round Table is that at least $1.5m HKD was raised over the weekend – fantastic news!!

Pedal Kart 2014

We are swiftly approaching Pedal Kart 2014 – an event Ladies Circle provide significant support to (and in return, Round Table donate significant amounts of funding to Ladies Circle supported charities…..).
This year is no different, and our Pedal Kart Co-ordinators Karla, Clare and Susannah have been working hard on our behalf with the Round Table Pedal Kart organisers.
Thank you to everyone who has already signed up to provide support.
Are you able to spare a little time over the course of 21-23 November to support this event, we need volunteers for marshalling and manning the Ladies Circle booth.
Yes, for the first time, Ladies Circle and Round Table will have a booth with the opportunity to further spread the word to potential new members.  Even if you can only spare a little time, do come and find us and help talk to people showing an interest in all we do at Ladies Circle.
I look forward to hearing from you !
Yours in friendship,
Fiona

Box of Hope checking

A great morning spent checking, and in Davina’s case, wrapping, Box of Hope boxes for the Philippines. It was lovely seeing the gifts people have put in the boxes, the messages from the children and the decorations on the boxes. Well done all involved.

November Socials

Hello Ladies,

We’ve got a busy month in November with Box of Hope and the Pedal Kart, however we have still managed to fit in a couple of social events around everything else that’s going on!
On Friday 21st November, we will be going to the ABC restaurant in Sheung Wan to help them celebrate their ‘birthday’. As those who have been before will know, this is a fun night with great food and free flowing champagne! We have booked a table of 10, and may be able to increase the numbers, but it’s a popular night, so first come, first served!
On Tuesday 25th November, we will be visiting the Hong Kong Maritime Museum on Pier 8, and will then have lunch at Cafe 8.
Please let us know if you would like to join us for either (or both!) of these social outings.
Yours in friendship, HKLC Social Committee

Socials this week

Good morning ladies,

Just a gentle reminder of the 2 social events we have lined up for you this week:
Thursday 25th September:
Walk from Parkview via the reservoirs to Stanley, a gentle, mainly flat, walk with the option of a cuppa or lunch at the end in Stanley.
Karen and Lynn are going to do this walk anyway, we have Sharon and (maybe) Davina confirmed too – if anyone else would like to join us, please email back here so we know who to wait for!
We will meet at 9.30 at the top of Parkview, by the gates to Tai Tam, the walk should take a couple of hours.
The weather forecast at the moment is cloudy, obviously if it’s raining we will have a rethink and advise those who have said they are coming.
Friday 26th September:
The Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning – is being held at Jenny Dev’s place in Mid Levels (address to be forwarded soon), from 10am to noon(ish).
Please come along to help raise money for this worthwhile Cancer charity in the UK, tell your friends, bring some cakes, eat some cakes, drink tea/coffee/juice, have a catch up with old friends and meet some new ones, have a go at the fund raising games Macmillan have given to each coffee morning – and we can put Hong Kong on the map too!
Hope to see many of you at either of this weeks events!

Macmillan Worlds Largest Coffee Morning

Ladies,

It’s only 2 and a half weeks away… that time of year where we can all ‘legitamately’ sit and drink coffee/tea, eat cakes and have a good old natter, and still raise lots of dollars for a worthwhile charity!
Yes, the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is nearly here.
What do we need you to do to help make this as successful as last year???
Spread the word, bake some cakes (or shop bought!) and be there to be part of a great morning of fun. Macmillan have provided a couple of ‘games’, which will cost a couple of dollars to have a go – remember it all goes to a great charity.
Jenny Dev has once again agreed to host – thank you Jenny. We will email Jenny’s address nearer the time.
Please take the time to ask your friends to pop in – maybe there are some budding Ladies Circler’s out there?
We look forward to seeing you there!

September meeting details

Our September dinner meeting will be held on Thursday the 4th September at The Harbour Room at Aberdeen Boat Club (ABC), 20 Shum Wan Road, Aberdeen , starting at 7.30 pm.
We have a fantastic line up for this first meeting after the Summer break.

  • Maggie will be joining us from Small Group Homes, bringing one of the older children from the homes to meet us.  We will be presenting Maggie with a cheque with our annual donation.
  • Gorden Marsden will deliver a brief overview about Pedal Kart, what it’s all about and how we can help support the event – in the run up to the November event – something Ladies Circle supports each year.
  • Finally, our after dinner speaker is Susanne Schutz of Suzhong Consulting who will give us a brief talk on The top 10 exterior and interior features to look for when searching for a new home (or possibly office): This will be more like an illustrated checklist of very basic things to look for and I’ll give a few simple remedies on how to fix “bad’ interior features – keeping in mind that not everything is “fixable”. There will be a Q & A section so feel free to come with questions!

Members will have received their invite earlier this week from our Secretary.  I do hope you are able to join us – please RSVP to secretary@ladiescirclehk.com by Saturday 30th August.

Don’t forget you are always welcome to bring your friends along to the dinners and talks as well – we are very keen to widen the membership and introduce new and fresh ideas.

Yours in Friendship,


		

Welcome Back from Summer Holidays…


We hope you have all had a fantastic summer, wherever you have been, or just ‘enjoying’ the heat in HK? We are all slowly returning to normality, with most children back to school next week, and time for LCHK to start back again after a couple of months off!
As you are aware, we have our Welcome Back drinks on the 27th in Iberico, we are looking forward to seeing many of you there – those who have replied as a yes are Sharon H, Emma and Lisa (+1). If you are intending to come, please can you let us know as we will be booking a table in the next few days (Iberico is very popular) – thanks. Also, if you have met anyone new to HK over the summer and would like her to come along as a potential new member, to see what we’re all about, that’d be great, can I just ask that you let us know, from a numbers perspective.
Also, please remember our Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 26th September, more details to follow, but in the meantime, please save the date in your diaries/calendars etc as we’d love lots of people to come throughout the morning, to make it even more successful.
There are a couple more social events coming up in September which we will advise about in due course.
Yours in friendship
Karen and Caroline

Social walk around The Peak

A small group of us had a little stroll (although a couple came dressed for a power walk!) around Lugard Road at The Peak, Hong Kong Island’s highest point. The sun shone for us on Thursday, the views were lovely and the lunch at Cafe Deco after was fab.

 

 

Thank you Lisa for the photos, did we sign up the stick insect???
