How it all started ...
Back in March 1992, there was no BTS from the Bearing and BangNa area of Bangkok, instead if you wanted to do an activity or meet a friend 'down town' it meant a very long car journey due to traffic jams and a 2 - 3 hour journey to reach your destination, was the norm.
Two ladies, tired of facing the long journeys decided to form a social club, specifically for ladies living in the Samutprakan area of Bangkok.
The idea was to get together not only socially, but also to do activities in order to make the best use of their time and to contribute to the community they lived in.
Flyers were created and distributed during evening walks or when seeing new faces at Bangkok Patana School. When the day for the first meeting arrived, to everyone’s surprise almost 30 ladies showed up. The response was tremendous, thus SILC was officially born.
A committee of active members was soon created and they in turn took on responsibilities for the running of the club.
Although first and foremost a social club, SILC also turned its attentions to helping the less fortunate in the community, raising much needed funds and actively volunteering.
Since that first meeting, SILC has grown in strength and numbers. Countless friendships have been made, millions of thai baht has been raised to help the less fortunate and every activity you can possibly think of has been offered to members over the years.
Long may SILC continue...
