International Woman's Club in Bratislava February General Meeting

Monday 28th February, Hotel Danube, 18.30pm
We hope you will all be able to attend our February meeting where we will be joined by members of a folk ensemble who will demonstrate the "Fasching" for us. This is a presentation of the carnivals held in all Slovak villages and encompasses the traditional fancy dress and dances. Please note that due to the upcoming school holidays, the general meeting will be held one week later than usual.
