SCNSW May Newsflash

Sunday, 4 May 2014

Grüezi members and friends!

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ― Albert Camus.

We hope all our members and friends had a wonderful Easter break and indulged in some delicious Swiss schoggi. The Club had a relatively quiet April with the unfortunate cancellation of our planned event, Chestnut Picking at Mount Irvine. The reason we cancelled this event was due to an unforeseeable early chestnut-harvesting season this year. However, we have decided to organise this event again next year, this time before the Easter break. The next issue (No. 221) of our Swiss Community News magazine is due to be sent out next month, and the deadline for advertising and report contributions has now ended. The SCNSW would like to wish Alles Gute zum Muttertag to all the hard-working and loving mothers out there for next Sunday!
