The first event of the year was a chance for the International Women’s Club Belgrade (IWC) to gather at one of the oldest museums in the Balkans. The Ethnographic Museum recently celebrated its hundredth anniversary and members were invited to join a tour followed by a showcase of traditional Serbian songs, food and drink.
Before proceedings, Eun Hai welcomed the club back from the winter break and made a few announcements including the Call for Proposals. The IWC are now accepting applications for funding and support for their 2022-2023 charity cycle. On behalf of the Charity Committee, they invite you to submit an application by the deadline February 28, 2023, after which successful applicants will be contacted.
The Serbian food and Slava presentation were then hosted by Ivana Zdravkovic and Ivan Maksović from the museum with Serbian members of IWC providing the food. The club were treated to a fabulous recital of regional singing by the wonderful Simonida who took them on a journey with her varied repertoire.
