Well done to all who took part in the Rotary Prague International Dragon Boat race. We improved our time, we were not last and had a great day! Thank you to our sponsor again this year Gosselin Mobility who helped us raise money for both Rotary International and IWAP charities.
Once again IWAP ladies chartered a bus to Boleslawiec, Poland for shopping trip for Polish Pottery. Some of us needed to add to our extensive collection while others joined in to see the beautiful hand painted pottery for themselves. It wasn’t long before they were hooked! Of course we stopped long enough for lunch at a local restaurant.
At our April General Meeting, we celebrated 25 years of IWAP. We had a special program featuring Blanka Lukes , who give us her overview of changes she has seen in Prague over the years. As well as Brian Stewart and actors from the Cimrman English Theatre Company with a special act introduced by our own Michel Lebl who gave us a tutorial on this Czech phenomenon. We closed the meeting with a champagne toast and followed with a celebratory luncheon at Hergetova Cihelna . Thank you to Heidi Batchelor and Colette Katschner-de Ruiter who organized this wonderful event.
The IWAP 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner took place at the 5* Historic Augustine Hotel on the 23rd of April. The evening was one of the highlights of IWAP’s 25th year celebration. Members and guests enjoyed a delicious three course dinner, dancing to a live band, raffle prizes and of course great conversation.
