At the end of February, when the first news of the coronavirus situation in Italy reached the CIC board, and we had to postpone our cooking pizza masterclass, it seemed so temporary and unreal…
We absolutely could not imagine at that time the cancellation of all our March & April events and the fact that we might also have to move the 50th Anniversary celebration of the International Como Club planned for the end of May 2020 to September.
Within a matter of days, the whole world was thrown into quarantine, and the period became a challenge for global trotters and international people.
The current situation, most notably for our members, with families located all over the globe, has split some of our members from their beloved ones and blocked others from returning home.
The Como International Club, alongside its members, is facing a new reality, and we have no choice but to accept it and stand together as a community.
Here are a few things that we would love to do these days:
All the membership fees paid for 2020 will be extended until January 2021.
We will introduce and have our first-ever virtual event!
On April 8 at 18:00, Eleonora Scholes and Alena Klimtsova will organize an Online Aperitive and Wine Q&A. During this virtual event, Eleonora, a wine expert & journalist, will answer the questions about wine. To participate, please send your skype nickname and questions to Alena: firstname.lastname@example.org And don’t forget to have a glass of wine handy
Anne Marie Delaby, an artist as well as our member, on April 4 at 10:00 is organizing an Online Workshop of Art Therapy. Anne invites everyone to participate! You can register to vie email: email@example.com
If you would like to share some of your knowledge, organize a masterclass, a virtual workout, aperitive or have an online chat with club members – please send your ideas to: firstname.lastname@example.org We will be happy to assist in organizing virtual club events!
I hope that this situation gets resolved very soon, and we meet again for coffee at the lovely Yacht Club of Como and participate in the fantastic activities created by the tremendous Como International Club Events’ Team.
I’m looking to the future with optimism and share love and strength for all of us.
Stay safe and keep in touch!
