A fun and friendly fondue in Geneva

The Alumni Association's annual Soirée Fondue did not take place over the last few years for various reasons. We were thus delighted to see almost thirty alumni gather last Wednesday night for what we are certain will again become a popular fixture in the alumni event calendar.

The venue was the Café de l'Amitié in Eaux-Vives, which the Ecolint group almost took over entirely for the evening. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere, as is the case whenever our alumni gather. It was particularly gratifying to see such a wide range of age groups in attendance, with representatives of class groups spread across seven decades, from the 1950s to the 2010s. (For a full list of names see below.)

The event was organized by the Central Committee of the Alumni Association, with support from the Alumni Office. Particular credit and thanks goes to Anna Szabados (LGB '90), who recently joined the Committee and had previously been instrumental in reviving another alumni tradition, namely the pre-Christmas B.E.E.R. gathering.

Get involved!

The Alumni Association works closely with the Foundation's Alumni Office and focuses primarily on alumni based in the Geneva area (with those based elsewhere organizing themselves into Chapters with varying levels of formality). The Association's Central Committee is actively seeking new members to get involved with organizing events such as the Soirée Fondue, B.E.E.R. and the Kermesse stands. And there are various other ideas in the pipeline. Contact any committee member - or the Alumni Office ( to find out when the next meeting is scheduled.

The full list of alumni who attended the 2016 Soirée Fondue is:

Alexander Haider (La Chât '12), Anna Szabados (LGB '90), Anne Konikoff (LGB '03), Benoît Urfer (LGB '79), Chamouni Stone (LGB '90), Dean Soldatos (LGB '83), Denis Kouzmine (LGB '06), Donata Jacot (Former LGB Teacher '12), Emma Fuller (La Chât '06), Erik Bjertnes (LGB '67), Fernanda Guerrero (LGB '95), Florencia Canessa-Sicardi (LGB '11), Francis Wright (LGB '58), Julia Williams (LGB '82), Karin Raton (LGB '70), Laura Alfageme (LGB '06), Lucy Smith (LGB '95), Maria-Theresa Sanchez (LGB '10), Micol Lucchi (LGB '06), Nadim Souss (LGB '06), Nicolas Etienne (La Chât '12), Pasha Mirza (La Chât '85), Peter Hachfeld (LGB '08), Saadry Dunkel (LGB '07), Samar Shaheed (LGB '06), Stéphanie Konikoff (LGB '03), Theodore Gill (LGB '59) and Xavier Thorens (LGB '90).
