The Java St. Andrew Society (JSAS) was founded in 1919. The Society aims to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish here in Jakarta. From smaller gatherings for a wee swallie to ceremonious extravaganzas such as the annual JSAS Charity Ball we bring opportunities for everyone to raise their glasses and toast Bonnie Scotland. With a skirl o' the pipes and a swish o' the kilt we urge you to dree oot the inch as ye hae done the span.
AGM AND MEMBER'S GATHERING 2016
The JSAS year has come and gone and it's almost time to hand over to the new Chieftain and committee.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hard working 2015/16 committee for all their assistance in putting together three successful events during the past year. Attendances were down a little on previous years but we still managed to donate over RP.130 million to six local charities and also set ourselves up for the big events to come. We will be making symbolic presentations of the cheques representing these donations at our AGM and gathering on Sunday 24th April. If you would like to join and need details please email email@example.com - BBQ and other food and many drinks will be provided. Join up to join in.
None of the events of JSAS nor the ability to make the donations mentioned above would be possible without the generosity of our sponsors - many, many thanks as always to Asian Tigers and to the RIO Club, to Jakarta Land and our new sponsors - Skyscanner, Corporate Room Deal and Swire Properties....and to our old friends at Phoenix Communications and new ones at Grand Sahid Jaya Hotel.
Hopefully the society is in a good position to move forward into the 2016/17 year in good hands - one thing I will be suggesting is an improvement to this site....and more frequent updates!!!! Hope to see many people at the AGM - Slangeva
