February 2024

How often do we see photos from the past with their names missing.
Personally, this causes me resentment, because how is it possible that I can’t come up with the names!!!
Should I start worrying about a deteriorating memory or is it just a temporary action of my memory.
Even more resentment (while I should actually be happy) when I only know after a very long time thinking: when and why and where the photo was taken and the names that belong to the faces.
Documenting therefore appears to be useful so that all information can be read back and viewed in the future. 

For that reason, Eltje Brill-Meijer has decided to make a photo document with accompanying names of the 18th Lustrum: Tuesday 4 June 2019 of the Groningsche Lyceumclub.
Eltje handed over this document as a gift to the LC Board during the Christmas dinner 2023 of the Groningsche Lyceumclub.
This photo document can be viewed after each Tuesday lecture.

By means of this photo document, Eltje has contributed to the continuation of the history of and about the ideas of Constance Smedley.
Eltje Brill-Meijer is 1 of the 3 honorary members of LC Groningen. 

Sincerely,
on behalf of the Federation,
Madeleine van der Vlist.

Accommodation with 15% reduction (for Lyceum club members) in the ‘Dutch Masters Amsterdam’ on the Keizersgracht, Amsterdam

Research in connection with the forthcoming centenary celebrations of the Amsterdam club and the associated centenary book has brought to light some interesting facts.

A great surprise is that behind the façade of 580 Keizersgracht is an apartment hotel, ‘the Dutch Masters Amsterdam’. From 1924 to 1971 this building was the clubhouse of the Amsterdam Lyceum Club. Despite having a different function now this former clubhouse gladly offers hospitality to all Lyceum Club members. The authors of the Centenary Book have had a look behind the scenes and the manager of the hotel has offered a 15% discount on the price of the apartments to Lyceum Club members worldwide.

Spread the word, visit the website www.dutch-master.com, and when booking, don’t forget to mention that you’re a member of the (International) Lyceum Club!
