The AWC Clubhouse has reopened its doors after the summer break. Our regular monthly activities will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 1st. But feel free to drop in during August on weekdays from 10-3 to find out about the American Women's Club of Madrid. We are located at Plaza República del Ecuador, 6 (walking distance from metro Colombia). Or you can ring the Clubhouse from Mondays-Fridays from 10-3 during August at 91-457-1108 or 636 863 923. Keep in mind that you do not have to be an American citizen to form part of AWC. Our members are from all over the world, the only requisite being a conversational command of English, as most of our activities are carried out in that language.

The American Women’s Club (AWC) July 13th Bring and Buy Sale (10,30-2) will be our last sale before closing for summer vacation. So now that summer is in full swing, and you´ve seen what clothing you can use and what is simply taking up space in your closet, do yourself and us a favor and bring over to the Club all those lighter items that you know you won´t be using again. We can make good use of all your gently worn spring/summer clothing as well as of your donations of toys, household gadgets and linens, shoes, jewelry, accessories, handbags, etc. Bring them all to the Clubhouse any weekday from 10-3. You can even bring things in on the day of the Sale itself. We are located at Plaza Ecuador, 6 , that’s right next to Talleres Ecuador and on the corner with Calle Oruro. Easy walking distance from Metro Colombia. It goes without saying that anyone, AWC member or not, is welcome to donate items to our Bring and Buy. Our monthly Bring and Buy Sale provides us with funds for Club overhead costs and for our charitable causes. Whatever we don´t manage is given directly to the charitable organizations that we support.
