American Women's Club of Zurich

Dear Members:

I hope this email finds you well amidst all the Coronavirus chaos. A vote was taken by the board yesterday and it was decided that all club activities which occur within the confines of the clubhouse, as well as the library, will be suspended until April 6, 2020. At that time, it will be decided based on the current situation whether the club will re-open to organized activities. Workshop Week 2020 is also cancelled.

The club activities that occur outside the club such as the walking group and Art Guild excursions will be at the discretion of the activity leaders. All rental contracts will be honored and will be allowed to continue uninterrupted.

The clubhouse itself will remain available to club members who feel the need to get out of their house and have a quiet place to read, get work done, or to just meet up with one or two friends and share support, because that is the basic mission of our club, to support each other. 

The health of our members is the most important thing at this time. Should any of our older members or members who are at an increased risk for the virus need anything, please let me know. There are those of us who will be happy to go to the grocery for you, drop something off you may need, or help you out in any other way possible.  

By now, everyone should know the proper procedures for good hygiene practices, as I’m sure you have been inundated with them via the news and social media. Two good sites for the most up to date information are:

  2. https://ch.usembassy.gov/

If there is any way that I can help, please feel free to contact me via email at atcpax1@aol.com or by phone at 079 908 92 71.

Best Wishes,
