It’s finally spring!
Ok, not officially yet, I know. But the signs are all here: there are buds on the orange trees; the hermandades are out in the streets at night with their practice pasos; ice cream shops are open again; my dog is shedding.
With the warmer and sunnier days this month come lots of American Women’s Club activities—our regular monthly get-togethers like the luncheon, breakfast club, family picnic, games night, book club, and movie night; and the special events planned for March: tours of the Ayuntamiento, Iglesia del Salvador, and Barrio Santa Clara, and upcoming concerts. Check the calendar, and look for emails and WhatsApp notices of new events as they are added!
Lots of us are thinking of spring cleaning—it is a good time to set aside donations for the AWC Book Exchange in May. This is one of our most popular events of the year, and a wonderful opportunity to socialize, pick up new reading material, and raise money for our AWC charities!
This is also the time to think about helping out next year’s AWC. We will be forming our board for next year, and we need your participation and suggestions. The club operates on input from its members, and this includes you! The American Women’s Club is a team effort, with many ways to get involved. Please think of all you get out of the club, and then think about how you can put something back in! Contact me—or get in touch with one of our fantastic committee leaders if you have any questions about the different areas of club activities and how you can help make the AWC better than ever!
We hope to see you at one of our events!
AWC Seville President
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, Movie Night, Games Nights, etc. etc…
• Charitable…..help us give back to the city that has given us so much pleasure. We support a couple of local charities: Sonrisa de un Nino supports poor children and their families, and El Pozo Santo gives 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 email@example.com—we would love to have you join us!
