A WONDERFUL MEETING
A wonderful meeting
What International Service Organisers usually strongly desire is to forge linkages with a great number of foreign IW members … that’s exactly what District 72 wants to accomplish.
Thanks to Isabelle Cheval, Secretary of the F.A.M.A.T., the opportunity to exchange with Mame Siga Dieye, ISO of District 909 (Club of Dakar-Teranga) was given.
It was immediately decided to establish friendly and cordial ties and a meeting with Isabelle and other District members was organised.
Since Siga is often in France, it was quite easy to set up a meeting in Tours.
And so it was … on November 9th four French IW ladies welcomed Siga in a cosy tea-room: Isabelle Cheval, Secretary of the F.A.M.A.T. (club of Châteauroux), Michèle Miroux, District Chairman (club of Blois), Virginie Chidiac, District Webmaster (club of Tours) and myself, Anne Ganes, District ISO (club of Tours).
Flags were exchanged and mutual actions were discussed.
A debate that was both interesting and productive. It was also the occasion to share laughter, it was great !
That’s the reason why it was agreed to see each other again. Siga even invited the group to visit Senegal next March for the District meeting !
Yes, the four of us were lucky enough to meet Mame Siga Dieye !
