Evening Event June 2017: Bowling Night

For our June Social Night, we went bowling! It was a fun evening of bowling and socializing. Spouses, partners, and friends joined, and everyone had a great time. The location was the bowling lanes in Diamond Plaza (34 Le Duan Street, D1).

June 2017 Highlights – Part 3: Workshop on Online Security on Thursday, June 8

Fifteen ladies attended the workshop, which was given by Brian Caleda, Director of iknow. We learned about online security threats, how to identify them, how to get rid of them, and most importantly, how to prevent them from happening in the first place. It was a really good workshop, and we hope to have Brian return for more workshops in the fall. Thanks for sharing your expertise, Brian!

June 2017 Highlights – Part 2: An Informative (and Fun!) Outing: Water Treatment Facilities

Here in Ho Chi Minh City, we receive around 90% of our drinking water from two treatment plants on the Dong Nai River and the smaller Sai Gon River. There were eleven of us who got to visit the plants to see how their work is done. It was a super trip, and everyone had a great time. Thanks, Mary, for another awesome outing!

June 2017 Highlights – Golf Outing

This month’s golf outing was on June 6th at Song Be golf course. Tee off time was 8:00 a.m., and the group of four chose to go with 18 holes.

June 2017 Highlights – A Month Long Project:

Over several weeks, ILV members gathered a collection of items to donate to a shelter in Dong Nai that provides care to mentally and physically disabled residents of all ages, from children to the elderly. We had a large outpouring of support for this project. Thank you to all who donated. A special thanks to all of you who volunteered to take the items to the shelter. Your efforts were greatly appreciated!
