IWOSC writers’ group summer party
Sunday, August 27, 2016
We enjoyed an afternoon/evening in the fresh ocean air as we mingled in the garden of MaGriffe, across from the Korean Friendship Bell.
Why? Becuase you never know what great ideas will come from a social conversation with a fellow creative, what tips you’ll glean, what inspiration you’ll find — but that good stuff always comes from such downtime and relaxing conversations.
Socializing and conversation was the call of the day.
Our new President, Gary Young, presented out-going President Flo Selfman with a few nice gifts and we all had some good smiles and laughs. Flo gave a great shout out to all the people who have done so much for IWOSC over the years.
