About the Event: 
As the Agenda is very light and we had few registrants, we decided to change this to a catch-up call.   All members are very welcome to join in (or just listen)! 

Agenda:

Craig Crews

4th of July event/Christmas dinner

Jerusalem Orhcestra

Whiffenpoofs reunion


News:

ART CIRCLE: A trip to the Greenwich Auction House in spring is in the works. Please get in touch if you'd like to suggest an event or get more involved in Art Circle. 


COUNTRY WALKS: Epping Forest in April - no details as yet.


THEATRE CIRCLE: We had our first event of the year at the end of February to see Martina Majok's play, COST OF LIVING, at the Hampstead Theatre.  It was nice to see some new faces at the event. It was a very thought provoking play and a wonderful production with some outstanding performances. The next Theatre Circle event is on the 28th of March to see Amy Ng's latest play, UNDER THE UMBRELLA at the Tara Arts Theatre. The event is now fully subscribed. Anyone with ideas and suggestions for other theatre productions in May/June, do get in touch with May Gibson.


TWITTER: if anyone has anything they'd like me to share on YCL twitter, they can email kamilla.arku@gmail.com. 


WHIFFENPOOFS REUNION: Prof James Manor '67 writes: I am a professor at the University of London and I live in Brighton. Between October 1st and 4th, 11 members of the Whiffenpoofs of 1967 (including me) will gather in London for a reunion. We have given several quite successful public performances in recent years, but in October we plan to sing mostly for ourselves -- apart from one evening for friends in Brighton after we leave London. I write to ask not about performing but about whether anyone at the Yale Club might enable us to book a group of 20 (wives are included) in for dinner at an interesting London club -- which would show my classmates an intriguing slice of London life. Please contact him directly: james.manor@sas.ac.uk


YALE GLEE CLUB and Trinity Chapel Choir performed to a full house in Trinity Chapel on Saturday. The YGC brought a diverse programme, largely American based, and bravely performed two very British numbers by CV Stanford: works designed for the chapel acoustic. They also showcased some young conducting talent and  ended the programme's first half  with 'Bright College Years'inviting  alums from the audience to join (white handkerchiefs and all). The combined choirs made a tremendous sound and will do so again in September when Trinity visits Yale.


YALE INTERNATIONAL ALLIANCE:: The YIA is a SIG connecting alumni who care about global issues, and is implementing its new Strategic Plan, including a global conference for international alumni in 2020, focused on the topic of Global Leadership. 

YOUNG ALUMS: proposing to start organisation for the annual football match 

ASC-UK Although the Class of 2022 has been admitted the ASC system has yet to update. Numbers will be released soon.


YALEWOMEN continues to have an active book club and is planning its annual social in the Autumn of 2019

Volunteering Opportunity of the Month:

Safe Haven Basketball is a club for young people with learning disabilities. Our aim is to offer quality coaching and competition opportunities to players of all abilities, and to foster personal development through sport. Currently offering sessions in London, in Westminster and Hackney. We are looking for volunteer buddies who can commit regularly to our Hackney sessions to support the players. It is important to commit to a term at least, as many of our players find change difficult.  It is our aim to make sessions enjoyable for all participants, members and buddies alike, and every session includes both skills training and a game.  


(The YCL featured 'volunteering opportunity' grew out of the action of the Class of '58 who, rather than simply writing a cheque decided for their 60th reunion to communicate the volunteering they had done over the years: their target audience is in particular other Yalies who are not yet even close to retirement, and are “too busy” to volunteer. Simply stated, they hope to help move Day of Service into an integral part of Yalies' post-graduation lives.  This initiative is headed by Tom Swidler, who is always looking for suggestions of organisations which could use our help.)
