8 November 2013 – Thames River Cruise with Dinner & Dance
As our Ball is only every other year the Committee decided to introduce a new social event „River Cruise with dinner and dance“ in the year in between. 90 members and guests of the City Swiss Club enjoyed a wonderful evening on board the paddle steamer Elizabethan. The evening started with a welcome drink and brief speeches from the Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Dominik Furgler, and the Chairman of the Club, Reto Jauch. There followed a delicious buffet. An attractive attractive holiday package was offered by auction and various sponsors donated raffle prizes. The guests enjoyed dancing to disco music. A big thankyou goes to the organisers: Walter Isler, Alan Martin and Ursule Thurnherr. The evening was a huge success.
I don’t usually write to companies in praise of their employees, but on this occasion the service we received from your event manager Rebecca was so outstanding that I believe it is only fair to do so. From the first moment to the last she was most helpful. In addition to performing her usual duties she came up with additional ideas and always found solutions to any minor problems of our making. She was available to us at all times and her positive, reassuring and pleasant nature contributed substantially to the success of the evening. Best regards.

Vielen lieben Dank nochmals für den unvergesslichen Geburtstag, den mein Vater auf dem Schiff verbringen durfte. Am Samstag waren wir auch an der Lord Major’s show, jedoch haben wir die show schlussendlich von einem Unterstand aus beobachtet, da starker Regen eingesetzt hatte und wir ohne Schirm unterwegs waren. Liebe Grüsse.
Ich möcht mich ganz herzlich für den wunderschönen Abend bedanken. Stefanie und ich haben es riesig genossen. Das Essen war köstlich, die Stimmung super und die Fahrt war atemberaubend. London auf ein solche Weise zu sehen ist einmalig. Herzlichen Dank. Auch der Umzug am Samstag hat uns sehr gefallen- es hat mich sehr ans 6lüüte in Zürich erinnert und vermittelte mir ein Gefühl von Heimat. Es war ein super Wochenende. Mit besten Grüssen.
Catherine and I wanted to thank you and the other members of the Swiss City Club for making us feel so welcomed at the Thames River Cruise. We had a wonderful time and we very much appreciated the opportunity to meet new friends. We very much look forward to seeing you and the other members of the Swiss City Club very soon. Kind regards.

The City Swiss Club have been a pleasure to deal with and I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed themselves on the Elizabethan. It’s so nice to work with an organisation that are so genuinely enthusiastic about their event! Thank you for your kind words - I will be sure to pass your feedback onto Chris and Belinda Livett as well as Rebecca. I hope we can welcome you to the River Thames again another time, Kind regards.

Congratulations on organising such an enjoyable and successful event. I would like to thank you again for giving the Swiss Church in London an opportunity to take part and for your generous invitation to me and Geoff Fisher. We both have taken away happy memories of the evening. With best wishes and kind regards.
I would like to apologise for not attending your dinner cruise yesterday. Sacha and I were very excited to meet you but unfortunately the tubes were totally paralysed at Bank around from 17:30-18:20 as there had been an accident with a passenger earlier on and it was impossible for me to arrive on time! I was very upset about missing the evening especially as you so kindly invited us both. I was also looking forward to celebrating my birthday in style! I look forward to meeting you at another event. Until then, have a lovely week-end. Kind regards.
Vielen Dank fürs Organisieren des gestrigen Anlasses. Es war ein gelungenes Event und es war schön euch alle wieder zu sehen.
