INC-Branding-5
    Dear Friends

    One thing is for sure this week: There is no time for boredom! From Monday to Saturday we will have at least one activity every day. Be it a museum's tour, a visit to the cinema, a walk through Chueca, a wine & tapas evening, or a joint shopping spree - there is certainly something for everyone.

    A virtual coffee chat on Friday also offers the opportunity to reconnect with our INC friends who currently can't join in person, or who are not in Madrid anymore.

    I hope you all have a wonderful week.

    Your eNews editor,
    Alexandra

    MESSAGE FROM THE

    VICE PRESIDENT TEAM

    Monthly Meeting_January
    Here we are speeding through the month of January; we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to take “pause” in last week’s meeting and learn some tips to channel through the challenges or strive towards personal success in the year ahead. Once again, a great big thank you to our extremely talented and knowledgeable presenters: Char Tamason and Barbara Scalara – what a gift you both have!

    We are also bringing you some great news in regards to our Hospes venue. The hotel has generously invited our entire INC community to receive discounts in their Bodyna Spa services and products. Codes will be distributed through social media and area coordinators; please be on the lookout for more information soon.

    Moving on to what’s in store, your VP team is re-energized and ready to get in gear for the next few months of activity. Next month we will change things up and meet for lunch at one of Madrid’s trendiest new spots: Caluana. March has us “Marching into Movement” with dance and choreography aimed to physically and mentally invigorate us. We have even begun brainstorming for April’s: “Artful Arrangements.” We are now calling on INC members to showcase forms of art in any capacity (e.g., painting, pottery, jewelry). If you wish to be a part of this event with your own creations, please contact us at the email address below. Save the dates are as follows:

    • Let’s Lunch: February 17th 13:30-16:00
    • Marching into Movement: March 18th 10:30-13:00

    Wednesday, 26 January @5:00 pm

    "Bombas para la paz" by Antonio Roman, Spain 1959, comedy, 86 min.
    Cine Doré, Calle de Santa Isabel 3, Madrid

    January’s Cine Doré retrospective is called De un Cine a Otro and features Spanish director Antonio Roman, whose film career spanned four decades from 1930-1969.

    A great window into Spanish culture, history, and early Spanish cinema. This movie is in Spanish, no subtitles. Cine Doré is an Art Deco jewel run by the Ministry of Culture and Sport as an art cinema.

    Synopsis: Before his death, a scientist reveals to his assistant the incomplete formula of a sensational discovery: a substance that makes the most bellicose beings peaceful. The substance is a real bomb and the scientist commissions him to use it to achieve peace in the world. After performing several tests, the young man travels to Paris where a conference will be held to be attended by the most important leaders in the world. His intention is to drop the 'peace bomb' at the conference.

    We will have a drink and a bite afterwards at one of the many bars in the neighbourhood. We look forward to seeing you and sharing a great experience together!

    Organised by our fellow member Elaine Samson.
