February is a funny month in Geneva. There are touches of spring with tiny flowers and more sun but the weather can turn nasty and cold at any moment. That’s why this year we are trying something new: a Winter Open House to get you out of your home and meeting new friends.
If you have yet to attend an AIWC Open House, we look forward to welcoming you to one of these busy and fun events. What can you expect? Women of all ages and nationalities. You will meet many of the Club’s 40+ volunteer activity leaders while sipping a steaming cup of fresh-brewed coffee and nibbling from plates of delicious home-baked treats. Each leader will have a reserved place at a table, where they can answer questions about their activity, introduce themselves to prospective members, and provide additional details about the AIWC.
From language lessons to hiking, bridge to photography, blogging to painting, community volunteering to sharing delicious food; all of these activities and more will be represented at the Open Houses. In addition, you’ll get more information about some of our upcoming events such as tours of the Jet d’Eau machine room and the Swiss Parliament in Bern, our Geneva photo scavenger hunt, Spring Gala and lots more!
These events are designed for everyone to enjoy, from newcomers to long-time AIWC members. It’s a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends after a winter hibernation; learn more about new AIWC activities, events, excursions and volunteer service; and to meet new friends and share perspectives about the AIWC and Geneva in general. Children are welcome to attend.
As always, delicious complimentary food, coffee and refreshments will be served.
