Greetings MIWC members and visitors,

Summer is in full swing, lovely warm days, spectacular thunder and lightening storms, biergartens, bike rides, travels and good books. The rhythm of the club slows down, but there are still many activities and events every week for those of us who are in Munich. I look forward to seeing many of you at our annual biergarten meeting for chatting and lunch on 13 August, 10-12, at the Paulaner Brauhaus, Kapuzinerplatz 5. See your Sunday Weekly Reminder or the website for more details…be sure to RSVP!

A few quick updates:
• The Charity team received ten proposals from our members for charity projects. It is inspiring to see the diverse projects in countries all over the world that our members are involved with! You’ll hear more about the projects and how to participate in their selection at the September general meeting and on our website. Thanks to everyone who submitted proposals.
• Our Nominating team is taking names and talking with people who might be interested in serving as chairperson or vice-chairperson upon board changeover at our February 2015 AGM. If you have questions about these positions, or would like to suggest someone (including yourself!), please contact the Nominating team: Hope Moore, Liesel O’Shea, Georgia Chapman or Susi Cullison at I’m always happy to chat as well about the positions.
• Our members have voted overwhelmingly to have our December Christmas luncheon at a restaurant! Thanks to all who participated in the online survey on our website and/or voted at the July general meeting. The recommendation of the multi-nationality team that explored this question and the agreement of the committee is that we will continue with the rotation of various nationalities to organize this much loved event…this year it’s the Brits! Please contact me if you’d like to help with the organization.
• The Christmas bazaar will return to its November general meeting timeframe, Wednesday, 12 November, 10-1. Michele Papke and her team are already meeting to organize this creative and fun event! If you’re interested in helping, contact Michele at

Wishing each of you a lovely summer, safe travels, and nice times with family and friends.
