Welcome / Older News / Message from the BRA Chairwoman

Our AGM went off well with no hitches and it was lovely to be “live” again and to welcome so many of our Members to the Casino in Bern.

The Platinum Jubilee Celebrations for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II were all a great success and very well attended. The Embassy sent a representative to each Celebration.
Thanks to the interest shown by advertising we have acquired quite a few new Members.

A lot of people will be away over the summer months and of course the weather will probably get hotter, but all the Regions have managed to organise events for you all to participate in.

On the 15 October we are holding our National Luncheon in the Central Region.
We will be in the beautiful Palais DuPeyrou in Neuchâtel.

Last year the National Lunch was held in Lugano, under the Ticino & Grisons Region and next year we will be in a different Region again.
The moving around of the Autumn Lunch in different BRA regions is proving to be very popular with BRA Members and gives them the chance to visit a different part of Switzerland.
Hopefully as many of you as possible will join us.

In the immortal words of a Beatles song I think my quote for the summer will be “But tomorrow may rain, so I’ll follow the sun”…

Have a good summer, all of you.

Angela S. Meier-Jones
BRA Chairwoman
