SCCC Newsletter

June 30, 2015

 

The summer has arrived with very nice and hot days here on the west coast of Canada. We hope that you can still find some time to read our articles in this short Newsletter. 

It was nice seeing many of you supporting the Swiss National Women's World Cup Soccer team at the recent games here in Vancouver and Edmonton. The final is this Sunday, in Vancouver but unfortunately without our Swiss or Canadian Teams.

We are currently working on a few events for the late summer and fall and will keep you updated as soon as ready. 

In the meantime, enjoy the reading, the beautiful weather and .. 
Happy Canada Day!
