Upcoming Events

The October Monthly Meeting will take place Thursday, October 18th and marks the 20th Anniversary for IWF. In keeping with the spirit of the organization, which encourages exchanging experiences and fostering connections and friendships among it's members, we invite you to join us for a celebratory buffet meal where we are the chefs and the guests! We encourage everyone to contribute a dish which is dear to them, whether it be a secret family recipe or a dish from 'back home' as cultural diversity in membership is a pillar of the founding spirit of IWF.  We hope you can join us to celebrate this occasion. Location and event details to follow shortly.
