American Women’s Club Lagos 50th Jubilee

 American Women’s Club Annual Tea

September 28, 2010

The American Women’s’ C was privileged to host their annual tea on the grounds of the American Consulate General ‘s Residence in Ikoyi.  It is a beautiful wide lawn backing on the waters of the Bight of Benin, peaceful and away from the bustle of Lagos.  We were re-acquainted with old friends to the tunes from the US Navy Band. Bill Stafford, the current CG, was our guest speaker.  His wife, Kathleen was proclaimed the honorary President of the AWC.  It was afternoon of wine and cheese from La Pointe (the local French grocery) and savories and sweets from the GQ (the American Guest Quarters).  Several of the AWC scholarship students attended as well as the First Lady of Lagos State, Mrs. Fashola, (the Lagos state Governor’s wife).

Today the AWC celebratede it’s 50th Anniversary.
