This will be the last IWCV Newsletter until September. Many of you will be traveling over the next couple months – possibly trying to escape the hotter-than-usual Valencia summer months – and we have decided not to schedule a whole lot of things until more of you, our members, are in town. But, that doesn’t mean that the IWCV will close down completely! Over the summer we will continue with these activities:
First Tuesday Coffee – on Tuesday 5 July (yes, that’s next Tuesday!) and Tuesday 2 August, both at 10:30 am at MuviMent, on the terraza behind the MUVIM Museum. The coffee morning is open to all women in Valencia, both members and those who have not officially joined us yet. There is no need to register in advance - just stop by and join us!
OWL – on Wednesday 27 July and Wednesday 31 August. The IWCV’s “OWL” Happy Hour will take place at 6 PM at Babilonia, just off St. Vincent Martyr next door to Hundred. Your spouse / partner / guests are welcome to join you. There is no need to register for OWL, but if you know that you will be at either – or both! – please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how many of you will be coming so that we can let the folks at Babilonia know about how many we will be.
Our monthly luncheons will resume in September.
Whether or not our “on-going” activities – the ones that recur weekly or monthly such as Women Who Walk, Mahjong, Knit & Knatter – will continue over the summer will depend on each individual activity’s coordinator. Please contact them directly, or contact Phyllis So, our VP – Activities, at email@example.com for information on the summer schedule for these or other activities.

CHARITIES AND FUNDRAISING
For those of you who are interested in donating to or volunteering at any of the three charities supported by the IWCV (Casa Caridad, Casa Ronald McDonald Valencia, Proyecto Vivir) over the summer – or even in the autumn! – please contact Pauline Fitzgerald, our Charities & Fundraising Chairperson, at firstname.lastname@example.org
As the number of special events and activities the IWCV offers to you, its members, continues to grow, we need more and more of you to help us coordinate them. You will never have to do this completely on your own, and we are hoping that enough of you will be interested that we will be able to work in pairs to make sure these things go off without a hitch. If you are interested in helping out – either on an on-going or one-off basis – please contact Phyllis So at email@example.com. And, as always, if you have ideas for new, different, and fun activities for our members, please let us know!
