Dear members,

Welcome to the blossoming month of May, the most transformational and vibrant
month of the year.

The IWC is blossoming and transforming as well. Events as the 2018 charity
funding allocation to the projects supported by the IWC, the recent Executive
board elections, the innovative formation of a Bazaar team headed by two
able co-ordinators and the brilliant IWC networking event at the US residence
have given our club a pleasant disposition. We should be thrilled by the wonderful
comments of appreciation by Bulgarian NGO’s, the positive feedback by
non-members and the diplomatic circles. The desirability for IWC membership
is phenomenal after the International fashion show networking evening hosted
by our own Nicole Simmons, our gratitude goes to her and her husband His Excellency
Eric S. Rubin the U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria for being such wonderful
hosts. I also thank you all for being there, especially for the colourful international
costumes display. I am pleased by the renewed members interest in our club life,
the participation, the willingness to host and put forward ideas. This is the way
forward in all our IWC activities – new alongside existing members, we can all
contribute through our individuality, our uniqueness and professional or life experience
to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and
compassion towards each other and the underprivileged groups that we support.
All I can say is “Thank you ladies for all that you are, for all that you do and are
about to do for the IWC”.

Let’s have a fabulous May.

“May all your wishes be fulfilled in May.
May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly rest you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the wind blow renewed strength into you.
May your path be bright all the the way through.”
Best wishes,

Albena Jones
IWC President 2018-2019
