Russian Samovar Tea Party coupled with American Halloween Party ...
...turning into Octoberfest Party..
that is how Saturday Club social hosted by Maria October 29, 2005 could be described. Three parties in one -- not a bad deal! We had it all - new men and ladies to meet, new dishes to taste, new music tunes to dance, new friends to make and new costumes to show off.
Maria and her sister Luba were perfect hostesses. I want to thank them for that.
I had been working in Russia and Ukraine for almost the entire month of October and came back only a couple of days before the party. Obviously, I could not be around to take care of numerous chores associated with organizing socials. I was surprised to see that it did not effect the quality of the party or its attendance at all. Once again, thank you Maria and thank you everybody who helped to make last party such an exceptionally pleasant event.
While in Russia and Ukraine I planned to meet with all the ladies from our Kiev, Moscow and Yaroslavl databases. Of course I knew that it would be an impossible task. But as Russians say, aim at the sun and you will shoot the moon. I did "shoot the moon" and interviewed 130 ladies on videotape. The meetings with our ladies were most rewarding. I admired the lady who traveled from another city in Ukraine in the overnight bus jut to meet with me (check the database for Natalia Murashova). I appreciate the dedication of some Moscow ladies who made it for the interview at my apartment as late as midnight on the eve of my departure for the USA (Ksenia Onohova, Galina Rudzik, Natalia Stukalova and Alena Milovanova)
These ladies were the most attentive audience when I talked about "dos" and "don'ts" of meeting a good man from the USA and the difference between EI clients and the rest of the frustrating internet encounters. Many of the ladies became so encouraged that they kept coming back asking me to re-record their video interviews for better presentation to our gentlemen.. I did not mind it, especially because typically they would come back with their girl-friends who wanted to join EI too.
Now Inna and I are working hard sorting out endless videotaped interviews and processing dozens of new pictures of the ladies who are anxious to start corresponding with EI clients. Please check the database and do not wait long to write to these wonderful ladies. They have been looking forward to receiving letters from you ever since I met them several weeks ago. . If you need more information about any of these ladies, please call me and I will be glad to share it with you. We'll be adding online video interviews as soon as we complete processing them.
Get to Know Us members, if some of you have not made up your mind about joining EI, this is the best time to do it!
All EI Clients and Ladies, Happy Thanksgiving Day!
We will not have our Saturday Club social in November. As you know, each year last Saturday in November coincides with Thanksgiving Holidays - the most traveled holiday in America. I assume that everybody would want to travel and join their families at Thanksgiving dinner on this day. In my family it is a big tradition and I will be traveling too.
Next Saturday Club social is December 30. Traditionally Christmas/New Year's Eve parties gather the largest crowd. Last year we had a party in New York Palace Russian restaurant and everybody enjoyed it. Get ready for more fun at the our Christmas Party this year. The time and the place will be announced later.
