Happy December to all our members!
There is a lot to celebrate this month, starting with our own AWC Christmas Party! Right through to New Year’s Eve, it’s a non-stop fiesta here in Sevilla! Depending on our country of origin and traditions, we’ll be celebrating Hanukkah, St. Nicholas Day, Dia de la Inmaculada, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Reconciliation Day, the winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, Los Inocentes… and our club activities will keep us busy in between. We hope you can make time for the Morning Coffee, Book Club, Quiz Night, Games Night, Movie Night; come to help out at the Children’s Christmas Party or join us for a Craft Beer Crawl.
In addition, it is the time of year to celebrate our friendships in the American Women’s Club of Seville. The Club is a source of of information and advice, and of social life and support, for many of us living far from our families. It’s wonderful to be connected to a community of women who know things and do things and plan things, and are around sometimes just for a laugh. Thank you all!
Thanks also to all our board members and event planners, and the folks who keep us connected to each other! Whether you are traveling this season or celebrating here in Seville, have a wonderful holiday season!
Merry Christmas to you all
AWC Seville President
P.S. As for Dia de los Inocentes, it takes me by surprise every year. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The three pillars of the American Women’s Club are:
• Social…..meeting other English-speaking women and joining each other for coffee, tapas, monthly luncheons, kids’ groups, plus many more activities. If you are new to the city, come and pick our brains, we have a fund of knowledge of Sevilla among us!
• Cultural…..join us for concerts of all varieties, visit museums and heritage sites, borrow books from our excellent Library, join the Book club, Craft Group, Games Nights, etc. etc…
• Charitable…..help us give back to the city that has given us so much pleasure. We support three charities, Sonrisa de un Nino supports poor children and their families; Las Hermanitas de los Pobres and El Pozo Santo give shelter to the elderly. We raise funds by having Mince Pie events, home-made cake and coffee mornings, our very successful Christmas raffle, and other events….have you any ideas? We would love to hear from you.
Visitors, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org—we would love to have you join us!
