ESU Atlanta Branch

A Message from the Atlanta Branch President

Dear Friends,

The Atlanta Branch of the English-Speaking Union has a long history as a very active and involved branch of the ESU. We have been blessed through the years with strong leaders and a membership committed to the ideals and objectives of the English-Speaking Union.

Our monthly programs are designed to increase appreciation of English language literature, the proper use of the English language, as well as an understanding of British and American history and culture. We strive to have programs at least once a month, September through June, including special events such as our Christmas Party and an old-fashioned English Garden Party held at the home of the British Consul-General, complete with fancy hats and a Pimms cup or two.

ESU Garden Party

The Pimm's Cup was flowing, the weather was lovely and the ladies' hats in every color and style were prominently displayed. Who could ask for more?

The Garden Party is usually the final event of the season. Even though the new officers have already been elected and the new Board members in place, there was some other "business" to attend to. Annabelle Malins, the current British Consul General, kindly opened her home again and hosted the event.
