The FAWCO Post Conference Indian-themed lunch and discussion at my house on April 26th was a great success with 17 members in attendance.  Despite a few technical hitches, I managed, and with the help of Maggie and Linda, to let people know what went on at the conference and to indicate where they could go on the FAWCO website to get more information on anything of interest.

One of the big introductions at the conference was that of the new online FAWCO magazine, Inspiring Women.  The first edition was also distributed in hardcopy form to members who had attended the conference.  It has gained rave reviews. Maggie and Linda both kindly gave me copies of this edition and I will put them on the shelves at the clubhouse if anyone would like to have a read.  Alternatively, and I promised to include this in the newsletter, it is available online at the link:

Inspiring Women - Spring Issue

FAWCO heartily encourage all readers to submit feedback via the survey in the magazine. 



 Target Project

The Target Project was announced- Hope Beyond Displacement as the 2017-2019 FAWCO Target Project.  We have raised an amazing €425 so far for this project (thankyou again for your efforts) and I will organize the sending of these funds via PayPal from our account before the end of the financial year. We will continue to raise funds for this project over the next two years and I will be planning a couple of events in the next club year, if I am still the FAWCO representative for AWG.
