Upcoming Events

May Monthly Meeting - Assemblea

Join us this Thursday, May 28th for the May Monthly Meeting and Assemblea Generale, where we will have the chance to look back on the social year, elect next year's Board Members and enjoy an elegant aperitivo with light refreshments and drinks in the beautiful setting of the Grand Hotel Majestic ex Baglioni (Via Indipendenza, 8). The meeting will commence promptly at 7:30pm, at which time members will be asked to cast their votes. Please note that the IWF will be making a donation to Amici dei Bambini, a non for profit organization, to be put toward supporting children affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal, and a collection box will be available for those who wish to contribute to this cause.

June Picnic

Save the date for the annual June Picnic, which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 7th. More details to follow.
