Review of the Year 2013

by Ralph Kratzer

TFR-LogoMany of the older members of the TFR may have found  that over the last year a lot has changed in the society.

The year 2013 is now drawing to its close and I want to give you a brief recap of the activities of the TFR.

It´s lined up like pearls on a string.

I’ll start at the beginning of the year, all of the mentioned activities and events you can track on the  website of the society by clicking here and then reading the individual topics (of course for the older articles you have to scroll back…! or use the “Search” facility).

Enjoying the get-together

I don´t think there are a lot of clubs in North Cyprus for foreign residents that offer so many occasions for their members to come together and enjoy the company of like-minded people!

In this sense, may all our readers have a Happy New Year!
