International Cook Group
This year we are very lucky to have Hiba and Neenu co-coordinating Cook Group for us! This is a lunch group that shares a passion for cooking, eating (!), and traditions from other countries. The host, working with 2-3 co-hosts, chooses a theme or a region to showcase, and together, prepare a meal for all to share. It does not need to be fancy or a sit-down meal, and it can be something that the guests help put together! The hosts share the cost, and there are lots of hands to help with the clean-up.
If you have not signed up and are interested in participating, you need to send Neenu and Hiba an email to be put on the list. We keep a separate email list for cook group. All members are welcome!
International Book Club
The International Book Club is usually held on the last Tuesday of each month at an International Club member’s home at 12 noon. The group reads a variety of books that we all select, and then share opinions and thoughts about the book in a fun and friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to meet new people and join in a lively discussion group while exploring a variety of literature. New members are always welcome to join at any time.
