May 2018 Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 8
A Word from our President
This has been an amazing year and a great experience for me to work with IWAT. I would like to thank all the board members for your unconditional contributions. Thanks also goes to all the members who participated in different activities and donated time and money to help the community through different charity events. We have had a monumental year of membership growth and strong support for our charity fund. We saw love and friendship flow within our organization.
