Fall into September

We all know that the weather can be mischievous in September, with summer coming to an end, we have gone from a very warm 33C to a cooler 16C in the last few days. The children are all back at school and the IWI Basel members are looking forward to many local activities; afternoon tea at Ettenbuhl, a theatre visit, wine tasting trip in the Alsace and our favorite curry night and not forgetting our crafty creations event, where a lovely member is going to try and teach some of us how to knit. There will also be a surprise social city walk organized by one of our charities ‘Surprise Stassenchor‘ (details will be posted soon). So why not join us and become a member of the IWI Basel.

Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer

With the summer slowly coming to a close and a very hectic calendar ahead for the members of the IWI Basel. I thought we should take some time to reflect on the last couple of months, where we have met for either IWI events or just as good friends. We had an ‘American style BBQ’ evening, Swimming in the Rhine, and a fab Gin-tasting evening, which was very informative! Basel Refugee Day which raised 850 CHF for Soup & Chill, a charity that supports the homeless in Basel. We received our brand new (and very popular) IWI aprons and some of our members have gone into training with their running shoes on (keep it up, ladies). 

This week we had our members meeting to discuss the rest of the year, and we have 21 planned events! We expect some busy months ahead, and some great fun.
