Mary's Dinner Club Stories - Our Future Selves, Changes at Mary's

mary anglebergerNot surprisingly this Saturday’s event - our ‘Come as who you’ll be in 2020 Party’ at Hotel Londa - has turned out the biggest and most successful event in the 3-year history of Mary’s Dinner Clubs.

It is very humbling to witness the positive impact this evening has made! The whole scope of dinner clubs and the extent of its potential for being an island wide platform for really constructive and powerful networking became even more evident this Saturday than during any other previous event.

Dinner Clubs are always uplifting and positive occasions and bring about fantastic connections and friendships, but when open-minded, innovative people meet and are told to ‘dream big’, the dimensions change. The group energy, the mutual encouragement, the exchange that followed were absolutely awe-inspiring.

We enjoyed a welcome reception in the airy lobby of Hotel Londa where we were all able to admire each other’s glamorous outfits. After a group photo of 35 stunning looking guests we walked the red carpet into 2020, surrounded by photographers.

Greeks vote in first round of local elections

Greeks began voting on Sunday in the first round of local elections that mark Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’s first big electoral test since coming to power two years ago. The vote, along with European Parliament elections a week later, are being closely watched as a gauge of sentiment towards Samaras’s fragile coalition, which could be in jeopardy if the far-left Syriza and far-right Golden Dawn parties fare well.

Thought for Today - Accept and Receive

Don't 'try' to do things, but 'do' them, don't 'hope' but be determines to succeed as when you 'try' and 'hope' you send out a message in which you believe there is space for failure.
