Newsletter 03/22

Updated: Apr 30, 2022

Dear SHOM Members,

we live in turbulent and fast changing times, times which often challenge us. The COVID-19 pandemic is still not defeated, there is war in the middle of Europe. We might face personal challenges, our agenda is more than full and we find ourselves trying to keep up to life's pace.

I wish we all have the possibility to sometimes pause and to be able to focus on the positive in our life. That we see the beauty in the supposedly ordinary things, forget everything around us when hearing a child's wholeheartedly laughter, be amazed by an impressive landscape, cherish our family and friends while being hugged or let our mind travel only by the smell and taste of a wonderful homecooked meal. I wish us this change of perspective. Much love and happiness.

Recent events in March

This March has been very busy and a lot of great programs took place. The Green Group has held two very successful events (check their informative newsletter!), our partner from DMEDD was inviting us to a moving film screening on behalf of International Women's Day and to a fantastic musical rehearsal at the CSO. And last but not least we organized a nice Coffee Morning, an interesting visit at the Yunus Emre Institute and a wonderful mini concert with bassoons and a kanun. A big THANK YOU for everyone involved in the organization and for offering the SHOM members such a diverse program!

Update from the Charity Group

Our booklet with "Soups around the World" is ready - and it looks great! It can soon be purchaised at the next SHOM events to support our charity project.

Further info soon directly from the charity group.
