IWCBB's overnight fellowship is eagerly anticipated by all members and this year was no different! We took off to Jaipur for 3 days (5th to 7th of August). Twenty eight IWCBB ladies were all geared for frolicking fun and maha mastis! It was a great bonding trip with many first timers - to both our annual ladies trip as well as our Club. We stayed at The SMS in Jaipur, and enjoyed the delish food, historic excursions, lots of games, as well as shopping brunches! Enough said. This is one fellowship that only the attendees are privy to major details!! ;-)
The OCV and the 2nd GBM was held at the Marine Plaza Hotel at 4pm, with the District Chairman Falguni Mehta presiding over the proceedings.

Joint fellowship with IWC Bombay Hanging Garden was held on 5th oct at BCA's Garware Hall. Our members bonded superbly with IWCBHG President Ishita Goradia and her club members!

The Best Dressed Prize went to Jighna Parag Jhaveri and The Best Dancer Prizes were jointly won by Grishma Doshi and Jankhana Mehta.
Held in Vile Parle West, this annual event is when the President has the honor of thanking Club members for helping in the success of all the projects & events held in her year. It was a beautiful evening of kite flying and music enjoyed by the members and their spouses.
A fun event where Dr Tushar Shah, noted Physician, stand up comedian and history enthusiast took the curious-minds of our IWCBB Club's moms & kids on a pleasurable walk around Mumbai city, familiarizing them with the history and heritage of Fort and adjoining areas. He spoke about the making of modern Mumbai, and as we marveled at the amazing architecture, he recounted amusing anecdotes of our city's rich history. After this beautiful morning walk, our enthusiastic troupe gorged at heritage eateries!
A Master Art Class where our Picassos and Leonardos whipped out their paint brushes to create a beautiful ocean painting, while feasting on Pizzas and Chilled Drinks, at the Pizza Express, to mark the Chater Day of our Club.
