connect, grow & thrive.

September at the LiLi Centre

The LiLi Centre reopened end of August and it is back to the business of making people feel at home living in and around Lucerne. The first big piece of news is that our website is now bilingual so that we can bridge the gap between locals and newcomers. Our regular events are back up and you can check them out here.

We have lots of interesting and informative events coming up this September including a volunteer orientation session, a ladies networking night, an information evening all about insurance in Switzerland and the next JIFF workshop! We will also be hosting an international dinner at the end of the month showcasing the diversity and deliciousness of vegetarian and vegan cuisine!  Keep reading to find out more! And don’t forget you can find more information on the calendar or by following us on Facebook!
