Photos From The Annual General Meeting

Dear Ladies,

I would like to send a very big THANK YOU to all those ladies who joined us on Tuesday evening at the Radisson for the Annual General Meeting and made up a quorum for the voting. I also send a big thank you to those ladies who could not physically get there but were with us in spirit.

We had not planned any changes to our Constitution so the meeting did not take very long. The result is that we have the same board as last year. Mauricette remains as Chair of the ICCB, Gabi Jazbutis remains as our IWAV Treasurer and I remain as your Chair.

Do not forget that we also have Taina as Secretary, Monika as Membership secretary and Irina and Ieva will organise activities and charity events.

We have said goodbye in part to Sydney and Erin but I am sure they will be around for a while to come yet. Thank you Sydney and Erin for all your work and for the effort that you have put into everything.

Edita Mildazyte joined us afterwards to talk about her charity Bedu turgus which raises money to buy insulin pumps for diabetic children.

Ladies that munch

I did say that I would reserve a table at Double Coffee on Vokieciu but instead I have reserved a table for 13.00 on the 4th May at Greito maisto restoranas, which is on Vokieciu next to the small Iki supermarket. It is a fast food place specialising in chicken and Thai food. Here is a link to a new website you may be interested in
It would be nice if those people who intend to join us at the lunches could let me know beforehand so that I have an idea of numbers.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day and holiday weekend. I notice that the restaurants are busily trying to get the outside tents and tables ready for the holiday so I sincerely hope the rain keeps away.

Photos: Great Time At Sue's

On Saturday we had a social evening at Sue's Indian Restaurant. There were 28 of us, not just IWAV ladies.

It was a wonderfully mixed group and we all had a great time. The restaurant worked very hard to serve us all at roughly the same time and I must congratulate Raj and his staff for making the evening go so well.

More Sweet Photos From Nendre

Here are the photos of Nendre from last week. The little one in the basket was the youngest one there and she was two years and two months. The little sweetie in the last photo was wonderful and enjoyed herself so much. All the children were great.

Photos From A Visit to Kindergarten Nendre

Dear Ladies,
Irina has kindly sent me some photos taken April 15 at Kindergarten Nendre. IWAV members were invited for a visit to Nendre to see the kitchen equipment purchased for the money raised at the recent Christmas bazaar. I missed this event but as I can see from the photos our ladies were given a sweet welcome and there was even an Easter performance by the kids! Enjoy the photos below!

Lunch Bunch and Ladies That Munch

Dear Ladies,

Lunch yesterday at La Boheme was a delightful surprise. Me and my soups - I had the mushroom soup and it was one of the nicest I have had in quite a long time. We then had salads - all different and all equally nice. Service was good as well. The only downside which was not the fault of the restaurant was the young couple allowing their child to crawl all over the dirty floor and chasing him/her with a spoonful of mashed potato. I hope no-one had been walking in dog doodoo before walking in the restaurant!!

We would certainly go back there.

Lunch next week Tuesday 13th 13.00 will be at Skonis ir Kvapas on Traku gatve unless I think of somewhere else.

A reminder to those people who are thinking of joining the evening munchers that we will be going to Sues Indian Raj restaurant on Saturday 17th April 19.00. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE JOING US. HUSBANDS ( well some of them anyway ) PARTNERS, FRIENDS ARE ALL WELCOME BUT I NEED TO KNOW SO THAT I CAN BOOK

Have a wonderful week

Barbara Chair
