Our fellowship theme for the year is ‘Bond ONE to ONE’, which comes with more fellowships amongst circlers within circle, inter-circle, intra-circle, area, national and international fellowships.

‘Friendship’, being one of our main motto at Ladies Circle, let’s magnify it by quality supplement and elevating fellowship to the next level by bonding more and more.

As a National Fellowship Convener, I’m elated at giving a few enhancers which will help add value and excellence to this facet of circling. These enhancers are divided into 4 quarters, further into 4 categories, so sky is the limit, plan what you want, when you want.

Do remember these are just suggestions you aren’t bound to follow any…
