The year of Country Walks ended with two iconic walks. On 24 May, there were 28 who took a coach to the Seven Sisters on the coast. The white chalk cliffs were stunning! We all felt a sense of accomplishment after climbing all of those hills. The final walk, on 2 June was The Long Walk to Windsor. It was a blustery morning but we were rewarded with the changing of the guard. Thanks to all those who attended throughout the 10 walks, a wonderful group of women!
The AWBS International Women's Club is a friendly club offering amazing opportunities to travel, do charity work, attend lectures and join over 25 activities -- all organized by our wonderful AWBS members. We are an International group of approximately two hundred members, who have moved to the UK, some for their first overseas assignment, others for their umpteenth; some have settled in, others are on short assignments.
Mark your calendars now: Saturday 29th October, 35th Anniversary Celebration - Dinner and Dancing!
Bring your husbands, partners, friends for this Celebration, Common, Celebrate and have a Good Time, because The Tide Is High and I'm Holding On ...whether you are a Super Trouper or a Super Freak we hope you'll be Dancin' the Night Away!! AWBS was founded in 1981, and who doesn't like turning 35?
Just when you think it can't get any better, our Special Events team, Tracey Davey and Lynn Dalleske, prove that it can. This year's Hats & Handbags spring luncheon took place on a lovely boat called Queen of the Thames, where we all felt like Queen for the day. I will let these pictures tell the tale.
Our final GM of the year ended as well as it began. What a year this has been! So many of you have come up to the board members to thank us for Mixing It Up with all the new meeting venues, the exciting speakers, the fun slide shows, the raffle prizes, more wonderful vendors at the Best of Britain room, and many more kind comments.
We learned today that our GM attendance rate soared from an average of 65 last year to an average of 100 attendees, so a very big Thank You to our members for showing up in such enthusiastic numbers.
