Dear Swiss Club members,


In our last newsletter, we mentioned that the Swiss Club General Assembly would be conducted on May 3, 2015. I even asked you to circle the date on your calendar. Hope it wasn’t in permanent marker, because ….things change !.

Due to scheduling conflicts, we had to reschedule the event for Sunday, May 31, 2015. Details are as follows:

Swiss Club Christmas Letter 2014

Dear Swiss Club Members

The Christmas Party will once again take place at St. Thomas Moore Church on Sunday December 7.  The lovable Swiss Club Santa will again make a stop with a bag of “surprises” slung over his shoulder, screeching “Merry Christmas”. If the children don’t run and hide in the parking lot, they get great gifts from Santa.  Food is everywhere, you are allowed to slip off your shoes, wine is on hand for the adults and no one pays any fees.  Please note the following:


Swiss Club Christmas Party

Sunday December 7, 2014, 2:30 pm

St. Thomas Moore Church

1200 N. Indiana St.

Mooresville, IN

All of the decorations, wines, soft drinks meats and table service will be on hand. If each of you would bring a salad, vegetable or dessert to share, we would be ever so grateful.

MOST IMPORTANT is for you to be a Santa helper. Each parent should buy a gift for their child and wrap it. Value of the gift to be around $ 20.00 to 25.00. Bring your receipt and the club will reimburse you.

Hoping to see you all very soon,
