A virtual event through Zoom was organized by the Inner Wheel Club (IWC) Bombay Kandivli District 314 to celebrate International Friendship Day. This programme was initiated by Past President (PP) Swati Banerjee and hosted by Exco Shilpa Govekar. The event was also graced by IWC Bombay Kandivli’s President Champaka Shankar, VP Hemal Mahesh, PP Shaila Pai and International Service Organiser (ISO) Manesha Shende. There were 22 participants from Austria, UK, Germany,France, Italy, South Africa, Uganda, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. ISO Viji Kishen represented Malaysia.
As it was an informal event, during the ice breaking session members shared interesting facts about themselves and their clubs. Many were intrigued by a dish called chocolate-coated garlic paired with bittersweet fresh brewed espresso shared by Beatrix Kohausz IWC Sazburg. Host Shilpa Govekar spiced up the event with 3 rapid fire questions to each participant which had members in stitches.
Members enjoyed the 2-hour session and planned to meet again.
