April 25th will mark the first in a series of five "Downstairs at the Club" events. This is an ongoing five-month plan to help our Activities Committee promote diverse and interesting AWC events. These events will be centered around performances or meals that offer variety and excitement in a café-style environment. We will kick off this agenda with an incomparable Wine Tasting Experience, hosted by our favourite connoisseur and importer, Cesar Ródenas Varona. It won’t be an ordinary run-of-the-mill wine event - but an epicurean delight.

The AWC charity committee recently coordinated the distribution of 15,000 yogurts to two of our charities. The Santa María de la Paz men’s residence in Sanchinarro, contacted us to see if any of our charities could use the yogurts. Of course, we were glad to help them.
Our most recent charity project, the Comedor Social Ventas, operated by Manos de Ayuda Social, is getting off to a good start. We are very impressed by the dedication and work done by this association, which receives no government subsidies. The director, Milagros Rodríguez, and the sub-director Beatriz Quintana, are warm and welcoming people.
Their locale, at Calle San Emilio, 50, was donated by a private citizen. Manos de Ayuda Social has been remodeling it for a year, depending on companies and individuals to donate building materials and fixtures. The volunteers even painted it and hung wallpaper in some rooms themselves. Apparently, it was a long, difficult process for them to get started.
