    To mark International Women’s Day ten of us gathered at the Natick Mall and shared the stories of inspiring women. We heard about strong women from Belgium and Germany who displayed courage and resilience and about a Somali anti-FGM activist who transformed her outrage into action and finally a Venezuelan nutritionist and humanitarian worker who has been helping in emergencies around the world for 22 years, and the last decade in her home country to alleviate the  local food crisis.

    Thank you Joelle F for organizing this interesting excursion. 
    We had a fascinating guided tour of the Groton Historic Center which houses a number of notable paintings and sculptures by renown local artists.
    We then visited the historic Groton Inn where we had the pleasure of viewing local artist and IWCB member, Joelle F’s beautiful pastel painting exhibition.

    We could not have asked for a more perfect day to gather at the deCordova Museum for our Annual General Meeting: sunshine and a light breeze.

    Seventeen members enjoyed each other's company, catching up after more than a year of not getting together.

    The business part of the meeting was covered, and then we enjoyed lunch, conversation and a short tour of some of the sculptures in the park. Definitely a place to visit again.

    Thank you to expert cooking instructor, fully setup with two cameras, Debra taught us how to make Okonomiyaki, Japanese savory pancakes, and included many aspects of language culture in the presentation.

    Students and a couple of partners enjoyed the tasty pancakes after the class.

    Before enjoying our meal, we said “Itadaki masu”, which shows gratefulness for the meal and honors all those involved in its preparation, from farmers and fishermen to the cook. After the meal, we said “Gochiso sama deshita”, which shows respect and thanks to the person who prepared the meal. To accompany the meal with the Japanese opening and closing made it truly festive.

    It was a wonderful experience, cooking together, sharing the meal and some stories from our travels.

    Arigatou, Debra

    We had an intimate and unique opportunity to listen to Jonathan Kaufman, a Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, editor and author.

    Thank you Jonathan Kaufman for the informative talk about your book, and the research and travels that went into the writing of "The  Last Kings of Shanghai: The Rival Jewish Dynasties That  Helped Create  Modern China."

    Thank you Robin for introducing us to the works of your distinguished friend!
