Dear ladies,

In the past month we didn’t have many club activities however Sofia is buzzing with cultural activities enabling us to participate in a variety of events and have fun with our loved ones. Some of us got together at the Car Boot Sale, the Asian Festival and finally at the big Africa day celebration.

IWC had a stall at the Africa day event where Zarina and Milena promoted our club’s activities and membership. We had tombola and giveaways. Besides, it was a fun afternoon with many of our members who came along with their families to emerge themselves into the African vibes on stages and the bazaar offered by the African embassies in Bulgaria. It was my pleasure as the IWC president to be the moderator and co-organizer of Africa day in Bulgaria together with the embassies of Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Libya, South Africa, and the honorary consulates of the Seychelles and Uganda. Furthermore, I recommended that the funds raised on the day be given to Petrovo placement center for adults and seniors, which we visited in May.

As it is the low season with most of us travelling on holidays, the activities of IWC are limited, so we will just have the monthly lunches:

  • July monthly lunch on Friday 12/7/19 at Largo di Serdika Bar and Dinner, Maria Luiza 2, at 12:30
  • August monthly lunch is on Thursday 29/8/19 at Back Ground Restaurant, Vitosha Blvd. 14, at 12:30

Just a quick reminder that during the summer coffee morning all children and grandchildren are welcome. There will be a table for them.

In September we will resume with club activities as usual.

As you know the preparation for the 25th Anniversary IWC Charity Bazaar is on the way. We are waiting to hear from those of you who are wishing to get involved in the IWC Bazaar team this year.

Wishing all of you a great summer and safe journeys around the world!

Best wishes,

Albena Jones

IWC President
