Last Saturday we met again at the Sardis Club for our annual Raclette. We had a good turn out with 67 attendees. Raclette started being served at 7 o’clock and there was more than plenty of cheese, salads and potatoes to be had. All could fill their belly with delicious desserts after the Raclette and a good time was had by all attendees. We are looking forward to next year’s Raclette.

Markus Bersinger on behalf of the Board
For this years annual meeting we welcomed 48 members at the Da Vinci restaurant in the Hilton Executive Park Hotel. Prior to feasting on delicious appetizers and an exquisite meal prepared by Swiss chef Mario Thom, the president, Markus Bersinger, held the meeting. After a quick review of the past year’s events, the finances were presented and unanimously approved.
Unfortunately we had to say goodby to two board members, Manuela Corbetti our treasurer and Corinne Staub our secretary. In their place we elected Ingrid Sapene as treasurer and Christian Hidden as secretary. The two vacant board positions are filled by Lorena Riedener and Arnold Bucher, both as members at large. We thanked Markus Bersinger our president for staying for another year, Maggie Deller-Haight as Vice President starting her second year of her fist term and of course Marco Deillon our long term member at large and bar man at every event. The entire board was confirmed with loud applause. After adjourning the meeting the president opened the appetizer buffet, which was followed by an exquisite dinner selection.
As in past year’s Christian organized a super raffle with prizes like a fondue pot, liqueur and many other good prices to be won. The income of the raffle topped $ 700.00, which entirely benefits the club.
A good time was had by all in attendance and the crowd started thinning after 10pm and the meeting was officially closed at 11pm.
For this year’s hike we gathered at Latta Plantation. Unfortunately not as many folks attended, though the weather was perfect! The hike was very nice and we have great picture as well, visit our gallery to view them. After the hike those who wanted could go kayaking which was super with only one down side, kids under 16 weren’t allowed to join. We grilled sausages and had lots of other goodies to feast on. Even though we were only about 20, all had a good time and I would say those who missed it missed a fun afternoon with great comradery.
