Hope you are all well a breathing a sigh of relief  as we are now able to add a few more activities to our lives.  The Board has met via ZOOM and has decided that the IWC-Valencia will offer a few activities for those of you who a ready to get out a bit.  We realize that some of you may not want to participate and that is fine too.  Each of us needs to do what is comfortable for us.  If you are interested in participating, I would ask that you go to the events page and sign up.

A reminder to those of you who have businesses or service that you would like our members to know about.  Send me a copy of your business card and I will post it in our resource guide on the page specifically for Member Owned Businesses.  Send the copy of your Business Card to

I would also encourage all of you to take a look at Valencia Resources.  It has a wealth of information and Sandra frequently updates the information.  

The donations made by our members to Proyecto Vivir were very much appreciated.  They are looking forward to the day when they can welcome you and give you a tour of their facility. Unfortunately the number of families needing support has grown to 25.  I will be sending an email with additional information regarding Proyecto Vivir as I hope we can continue to reach out to them in this time of need.

Phyllis So is putting together a “Lecture Series “ for our members.   If there is a topic you would like to know more about, or something you would like to share with the membership, please get in touch with Phyllis at:
