Dear IWF Member
Here we are in October with all things autumnal on the horizon! IWF has lots of fun events planned for this month; hopefully we will see you at one or all.
Save the Date for the October Monthly Meeting, which will take place on 21 October. We look forward to exploring Bologna with a walking tour by Anna Brini. Details to follow!
A volunteer opportunity has opened up and we are looking for a new Interest Group Leader for the Language XChange. Being an interest group leader is a fun way to become further involved in our community by arranging small informal events that welcome members with common interests on a monthly basis. If you are curious and would like to learn more about joining our group of leaders, please email email@example.com.
Renew your membership for the 2021/22 social year! Fees can be paid this month at the Kocktailklatsch event, the next Monthly Meeting, and online — see our membership page for payment instructions. For any questions, please contact the IWF membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Language XChange – is back on 5 October at 1.30 at the Chalet dei Giardini Margherita with ample outdoor space. We are finally meeting with old, and hopefully new friends, for an informal conversation in English, for those who would like to sharpen their skills, and in Italian for foreign friends who might have just arrived in Bologna and need the extra exercise. If you are interested in joining please use the comment section here!
