“Hope smiles from the threshold
of the year to come,
whispering ‘it will be happier’…”
― Alfred, Lord Tennyson
I love this quote for the New Year—first of all, I love the optimism of new possibilities. Also, it gives everyone the impression that I actually read Tennyson.
One of the things that I want to do this year is go to some AWC activities that I haven’t attended in awhile, and meet some of the members in those groups. There are so many fantastic women in the the club, and their hard work and energy are always providing new ways to enjoy life in Sevilla.
I’d like to encourage each of you to look at our event calendar and find something new to try—you’ll find monthly activities, like Morning Coffee, Book Club, Games Night, Movie Night, Family Picnic, and AWC luncheons. Other events pop up when our members have the opportunity to organize something special, like museum visits, beer tasting, concerts, lectures, walking tours, and more.
Have a very happy 2020, and I hope to see you soon at one of the AWC’s many 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 firstname.lastname@example.org—we would love to have you join us!
