President, 2012 - 2014
Welcome Members and Guests,
Once again we begin another exciting year of events and activities with the International Women’s Club – Bermuda. Along with an incredible group of dedicated and hardworking women on the Executive Board, I look forward to working with the entire organization to ensure the club continues to maintain its reputation as a support group to both newcomers to this island as well as to all of our current members. Our Activity Chairs have generously volunteered their time as well and are truly dedicated to providing fun and exciting activities each week, throughout the year. I hope that all members continue to participate and enjoy the club activities and carry on the legacy of fellowship and service to the women in Bermuda. I strongly encourage newcomers to join us to make new friends and share your interest and talents.
The IWC - Bermuda has been host to women from all parts of the world since 1981. We are a proud member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, which has branches all over the world. The IWC - Bermuda offers a wide range of activities to a diverse group of women, offering to all who participate something they can enjoy. For many of us, the IWC is a lifeline, helping to make Bermuda a home away from home. It is a place to network, make friends and develop a comfortable support system.
One of the most important aspects of the organization is its philanthropic involvement throughout the island. The past year members generously donated over $10,000 to various charities including The Adult Education Centre, Centre Against Abuse, Bermuda heart Foundation, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre, Women’s Resource Centre, Eliza Do Little Society, and Bermuda Toys for Tots. Over the years, we have donated to a wide variety of charities and organizations both in Bermuda and abroad all of whom greatly appreciate our members who so generously give their time, talent and cash donations to assist those in need.
The four goals of the IWC – Bermuda are to promote intellectual growth, to encourage social fellowship, to provide service to the community and to assist in the integration of newcomers to Bermuda. The IWC - Bermuda is over 200 members strong. Spread the word about our wonderful club. Get involved, make new friends and enjoy all that we have to offer.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
