Something for Everyone Through Shared Interests
AIWM is an association for all nationalities and ages to meet and to make friends through social, cultural and fundraising activities. Whether you live full-time or part-time in Malta, you are invited to enjoy a variety of activities and events throughout the month.
Typically, we hold a Monthly Membership Meeting (MMM) at various venues, ranging from members’ homes to historical monuments which is a wonderful chance for all of our members to gather, to socialise and to sign up for upcoming activities and events. Occasionally, there are short presentations on topical subjects. Lasting for at least two hours, these meetings are usually scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month. Sadly, Covid 19 has put this on hold for now.
At the heart of the association are the activities that members themselves organise to share common interests. These special interest groups are small, allowing for members to become better acquainted in a more intimate environment. We welcome ideas for special interest groups that any member would like to organise.
On-going special interest groups during the month include:
AIWM Book Club
The Book Club is open to AIWM members who would like to exchange ideas on a variety of books.
Our gatherings are on the last Wednesday of every month. During Isolation these gathering are being held via zoom, but we are now meeting together at the Palazzo again. The book to be discussed on Wednesday 24 February is ‘Big Lies in a Small Town’ by Diane Chamberlain.
The book for March is ‘The Dutch House’ by Anne Pratchett
Where: Palazzo Parisio, Naxxar : 1030 – 1200
Ili hawn mis-sebgha, ta! What does this sentence mean? Several of our members are already learning some useful phrases and gaining some insight into the beautiful
language of our islands. Join us and learn how to communicate in Maltese.
For dates please check out the AIWM newsletter
By the way, “Ili hawn mis-sebgha, ta!” means “I’ve been here since seven.”
Pause Café at Home
The Pause Café at Home is an informal occasion for a small group to come and chat in an informal setting. The hostess chooses the food and refreshments, which can be very simple.
The date for the next Pause Cafe will be detailed in our newsletter
Bon Appetit Club
Do you have an interest in trying restaurants that serve a country’s national cuisine? This lunch club might be for you! It’s a great way to socialise with our members over a good month.
The next lunch will be publicised in the newsletter.
Each month there are “Monthly Specials,” organised by our Social Committee who accept fresh ideas from all members. Specials have included a private tour of St Paul’s Catacombs, a tour of the Malta Parliament Building, a crash course in drawing skills and a private tour of Manoel Theatre.
