OIWC gives donations to local organizations

Date Posted: 2004-06-17

The Island's leading International women's organization wrapped up Its season by making donations to volunteer and non-profit organizations doing charity work both on the Island and overseas.

The Okinawa International Women's Club made the presentations during Its final luncheon of the year two weeks ago. Recognizing services provided by non-profit and civic organizations, the OIWC provided funds to continue their works.

The OIWC Is committeed to fostering a better understanding between local Okinawans and foreigners. When the group first began over 50 years ago, it was only open to wives of high-ranking officers and government officials, but now women of any nationality and background are welcome to join as long as they share a common desire for cultural exchange. The club organizes many activities throughout the year, except during summer break. Those interested in joining can become part of a culture group with approximately a dozen members who regularly receive each other into their homes for cultural exchange and friendship.

For more information on OIWC events or for membership particulars, call Gale Rodgers at 932-7232 or June Nicholson at 937-3921. Interested readers are invited to attend OIWC's coffee meeting at Butler O'Club at 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 16.

Outgoing president Stacy J. Kluckman presents donations to such organizations as the Special Olympics.
