Membership News

Jackie and Linda spent the weekend getting the word out about AWC. On Saturday it was off to the International College of Spain. Then on Sunday we visited the American School of Madrid. Many interested women stopped at the table, took information and provided us with email information.

Linda gorged herself on the paella at ICS and the barbecue at ASM, and baked goods at both. She is more than willing to attend more of these functions to eat, er, represent AWC.

Check out the pictures in the Membership Gallery.

Walking Tour- Retiro

in

On Thursday, September 24, we will walk around Parque del Retiro. This is a great way to get some exercise, talk with others and enjoy some camaraderie afterwards with some coffee.

The walk lasts approximately one hour, followed by a visit to the coffee shop.

Newcomers are welcome and this is an especially nice way to see a little bit of Madrid.

Please sign-up at the clubhouse or by e-mailing president@awcmadrid.com.

Details regarding the starting point will be forwarded via email.

Wine Tasting and Paella

in

On Friday, September 18, at 7:00PM, at The American Women’s Club; we will have our favourite winemaster, Cesar Varona, return with a special treat. Not only is he preparing to dazzle our senses with some new exotic wines; he’s going to feed us also. Nothing fancy...but he’s cooking up a paella to die for. And to insure that he gathers the freshest fish and ingredients, he’s dragging me to the Fish Market at 5:00 AM to assist with “the catch of the day”.

Bring and Buy Sale

in

Please come to the clubhouse on Monday, September 14th for the monthly AWC second-hand sale. 10:30-2pm.

As always we will have women's clothing, children's new and used clothes, household items and miscellaneous.

Welcome Back

The AWC clubhouse is once again open after being closed for the summer. Many members had exciting and interesting summer vacations and I'll be updating and posting photos as member return to Madrid. Check out the new photo album "Life Outside the Club" that shows what we were up to this summer.

Congratulations to our clubhouse secretary and her family as her son Antonio got married this summer. And to long-time member Lynne Friedman, whose beautiful daughter, Natalia, got married as well.
