I hope you all had an enjoyable summer with a chance to get away, relax and spend time with your families and friends.
Little did I know in May that I'd spend every day of the summer working in our agriturismo B&B. We've been at full capacity since June and taking care of guests was something new to me. It's been fun and exciting as well as stressful and tiring.
It's been a learning season, which made me realize that the quality in hospitality is an endless path.
Now that August is winding down I'm looking forward to the upcoming year with AIWC and to getting to know you better.
If you are a new member, we are all proud to welcome you to the American International Women's Club of Genoa. Besides making new friends, you can get the most out of your membership by participating in our various projects and activities, all of which support and improve the local community and promote a wonderful camaraderie. There is really something for everybody. Our traditional Welcome Back coffee morning will be held in Arenzano and I know that the ladies will do a wonderful job in organizing it. Please come and join us!Sarah Wallace, President of AIWC of Genoa
was once again a highlight of the July calendar in Genoa. The US consular agent Anna Maria Saiano had the pleasure to welcome all guests to this joyful and happy occasion. Speeches, poems, music and performances of a local cheerleading group made it a day to remember.
THE 238TH US INDEPENDENCE
DAY CELEBRATED IN GENOA
Hundreds of guests gathered at the courtyard of Palazzo Bianco on Via Garibaldi to mark the US Independence Day in July. AIWC members were all invited and quite a few of us attended, very much enjoying this special event.
The US Consul agent in Genoa and our Honorary President Anna Maria Saiano warmly welcomed all guests together with the Consul General from Milan, Kyle Scott. Amongst the many distinguished guests were the Mayor of Genoa, Marco Doria and Vice Mayor Stefano Bernini. Soprano Irene Celle sang the national anthems of both Italy and USA. A poem praising the city of Genoa by William Carlos Williams was read by Ginni Gibboni. The performance of Le Rapallo Cheers brought smiles to everyone’s faces!
