President´s message

February 2018

Dear Ladies,

I wish to welcome you all to the start of a new year with the IWC. Special welcome to all our new members: Cristina Otero, Susan Linde, Ingrid Larsson, Stefania Liassides, Gertrud Wincrantz-Wernstedt, Katarina Ekman, Gillian Wood, Maria Bunyemen, Maria Alcazar-Schensted, Genevieve Cabato and Adrianne George Lind. I hope you all will come to our Newcomer’s mingle later this month and we’ll have the opportunity to get to know each other.

In December we raised funds for the Armenian Lighthouse Charitable Foundation (ALCF). I am pleased to announce that we were able to raise approx. 45.000 SEK for ALCF.

I wish to thank the Armenian Ambassador H.E. Artak Apitonian, Mrs Suzanna Gyozalyan and Minister Counsellor Arshak Manoukian for their overwhelming generosity and hosting a wonderful Christmas luncheon! Please accept our heartfelt thanks.

I would also like to thank all those who came and celebrated with us and contributed to our fundraising in various ways. I am very proud of my fellow board members for all their hard work behind this event and to the committee members, their help is irreplaceable. Thank you all!

February is a month when there is love in the air and we’ll remember our loved ones with a little extra. During our lunch you will enjoy the most beautiful serenades and arias from Puccini performed by our new member Charlotta Huldt. Make your lunch reservation on time and bring your special guest with you!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

All the very best,

Pirjo Soppi-Sandell
