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.
