What's up in BIWA through the summer?

Greetings from BIWA's President

Another BIWA year is over and my first year as a president. It has been a busy year with a lot of challenges, but we have done a great job. This would not have been possible if I didn't have dedicated, hard working board members to help me. I cannot thank them enough. I have now decided to do one more year as BIWA president.

Biwa Charity Spring Ball 2014 is finished and it was a fun event. This year it was a "masked ball". Many people had bought and wore different beautiful masks. I'm proud to tell that this year we managed to raise over W7.000.000. Thanks to the Biwa planning committee, Haeundae Grand Hotel and all the sponsors who made this event possible. It was actually my first BIWA Spring Ball;) Earlier years I've always been in Norway when this event has taken place. 

I'll also take this opportunity to wish everybody a wonderful summer here in Busan or wherever you go during the summer. Many BIWA members and their families are leaving Busan for good this summer and are going back home or to other new destinations, but new families are coming. I wish you all the very best and good luck with your new lives.

To all of you, take care and to those of you who are coming back to Busan after summer holiday, see you in September:)

Summer Greetings from
Monica C. Rossevold
BIWA president
