Lunch for New Members
Every third Thursday of the month at 12:30 p.m. (after ILV Coffee Morning), often at the Hard Rock Cafe, D1.
This lunch is primarily for those who have become ILV members in the past three months, but all members are invited to join in.
It is an opportunity for new members to learn more about ILV and about living in Saigon, including the best places to shop or dine or have a coffee, where to get what, and all the questions you want to ask. You will also meet some of our Committee members and other newcomers. An E-vite will be sent to ILV newcomers about a week before the lunch. Watch your inbox for the E-vite, or let us know if you haven't received it by emailing Jay.
MONDAY AFTERNOON TEA & BOOK CLUB - Every fourth (or last) Monday of the month at 2 pm at Villa Royale Downtown Antiques & Teahouse (25 Ho Tung May, D1).
Book club for March will be on the 26th. The book selected is Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The book for April's meeting on the 23th is Beneath a Scarlett Sky by Mark Sullivan.
More details can be found in the flyer below. Books selected for discussion can be downloaded from the Kindle store and other online venues, so don't worry if you can't find a hard copy. Use the button below to contact Moray, the book club coordinator, if you have any questions about how to obtain the book for the month.
Sign up via the button below or at the Coffee Mornings. Reminders are sent by E-vite to everyone on the book club list. Please remember to RSVP to the E-vite!
MAHJONG & INTERMEDIATE BRIDGE
Every Tuesday, 10:00AM until noon. Sign up at Coffee Morning then show up at Norfolk Mansion to get in on the action. We are currently looking for more bridge players. If you are interested, please sign up at Coffee Morning.
Generally once per month. A round of golf (9 or 18 holes) at different area golf courses. Sign up and get more information at Coffee Morning. After you sign up, you'll be contacted by our Golf Coordinator, Petra van Walt Meijer-Pen two weeks ahead of each planned outing with information on the date and location. Note: These outings are for golfers with experience since a handicap is needed to play on courses here.
Every Friday from 10:30AM to noon at the Estella, D2. Cowboy hat and boots not required! Any comfortable shoes will do. Sign up at Coffee Morning.
Every Friday at noon.
Lunch followed by cards at different restaurants. Sign up at Coffee Morning.
New! A monthly ILV Knit & Natter crafting group. Meetings are held on the second Monday of every month from 10AM onwards.
We each work on our own handicraft and needlework projects in a casual group atmosphere. To vary things up, there may be occasional stash-expanding shopping excursions, informal lessons, and group projects for making handicrafts to sell at the ILV bazaar in November (proceeds to go to charity).
If you are interested in participating in the group, please sign up at coffee morning or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so your name and email address can be added to the Evite list.
High Tea at Cafe Cardinal
It was a lovely time at THE REVERIE SAIGON in Times Square, with ILV members experiencing High Tea at one of the most elegant venues in Saigon.
Thanks to Leanne Jones for providing the photo of ILV members enjoying the outing.
