Hi there,

I'm looking for English speakers socialize with in St. Gallen as well. Looks like there have been a lot of new people introducing themselves who are new to St. Gallen... perhaps we should organize a meet up?

I've been here since November. My husband is in school and I am working remotely for my American company. I moved here from DC.

I think it's a great idea! I really want to meet up with some new people. It would be awesome to have some events like the English speakers in the Zurich area do.

I'm new to the city too, it looks like there are definitely enough people in St. Gallen for a meet-up

BTW a weekend meet up would be especially good as I work long hours during the week

I've been living in St. Gallen for awhile now but am always looking for new English speaking friends! I came to Switzerland in 2007 to be an Au Pair and have been here ever since, and am now married :-)

Anyone interested in meeting up
, send me a message

hey, AnaFau!

Funnily enough, I also moved here a couple of weeks ago to be with my boyfriend. I'm from the States as well: Baltimore, MD. I'd love to meet up with everyone when a time is set up.

Are you on a job hunt as well?
So who's going to take the plunge and organise an EF social event? Please do it soon otherwise this could end up being the longest EF soap opera yet. Make it interesting enough and you may even tempt some out of towners like me

You'd actually be better off posting it as an event in the Events Calender here. Otherwise, if you're not a member of the group you would never hear about it. And as I said above, you may event get members from out of town popping by for a drink.

EDIT: such as Sutter

I just tried to but it said I dont have sufficient permission. Im assuming that is because Im new to EF, and I guess jcook would have the same problem. It would be awesome if someone else could help out and make the event.

Re: St Gallen

Yeah, I don't have permission either. I would highly appreciate any assistance from a more qualified member Whoever gets to it first can even pick the restaurant if Stars and Stripes doesn't sound appealing to you. Thanks in advance!! Hope to see everyone there.

Re: St Gallen

We can`t make this sunday how about we all meet up on the 12th March Saturday night for a meal, this will give us more time to plan and organise, of course you can all meet up on sunday and again on the 12th let me know what you think.

Re: St Gallen

Hey Sutter
The 12th sounds great if you want to set something up!! I think since a lot of people already know about this Sunday that we will just meet up anyways but I won't make an official event about it. Thanks so much for doing this!!

Re: St Gallen

Thanks for doing the organising, Sutter!
I'm really sorry but I'm one of those who has expressed interest in an SG get-together but didn't make it to your thingy after you went to all the trouble of organising it. Sorry! I've been busy and forumless (and internetless) and only just saw the posts about the 12th.

Hopefully some of our move chaos will subside a little soon!
