Eurocircle’s 20th Anniversary Party at Pyramid Club

Note from Sherry:
There are some people in these photos who I’ve known since the start of Eurocircle PHL. Thank you all EC members, and co-hosts who have helped me grow the circle, thank you Brian Hunt of Ethimo Photo for capturing our best moments, Maureen Coyle of the Pyramid Club without whom this tradition would not be possible, and all you wonderful people who have become true friends.


It has been 20 years since a few European expats threw a tiny get-together in their small Manhattan apartment hoping to meet like-minded Europeans and make new friends. The group grew quickly through word of mouth and became the biggest global friendship network with chapters in every major city around the world.

Today, we party and travel the world together.

Join Eurocircle as we celebrate our 20th years of global friendship.

Drink Specials: The Eurotini
Light hour d’oeuvres
Dress code: Cocktail

Our International Co-Hosts are:

Valeria Khmelnitsky: Ukraine

Autumn Hike

Let’s enjoy fall foliage, crisp weather and Philly’s most beautiful hiking trails, with a Eurocircle hike in the Wissahickon. We will meet in front of the Valley Green Inn. Depending on how many people show up, we may break off into 2 groups. We will choose the trail depending on skill level of attendees.

**Please be advised that this is the most popular time to hike here, so parking will be limited. Give yourself extra time to find a parking spot. I aim to park early in front of Valley Green Inn. The entry point is off Ridge Avenue, down Wises Mill Road. You may have to park near Ridge Avenue, and walk down into the park.
Also, the lots are not paved here, and SUV or an Uber might be the way to go.

What to bring: Hiking shoes, water/snacks.
I haven’t planned a post hike lunch/brunch. If anyone has suggestions, please message me.
