IWP Happy Hour



Lets have some Mahjong fun!

Let’s have some fun! Claudia has taken the initiative to start a Mahjong group in the Colares area, but of course everybody is welcome. Claudia teaches you the basics of the Mahjong game. It is a nice way to get to know each other better, and to have fun while enjoying a snack and a drink. At this moment, Friday afternoon 13:30 is chosen as the time for the Mahjong event, but this is flexible. We still have to choose if it’s going to be an weekly event of maybe twice per month. If you would like to learn Mahjong too, you can register with Claudia. She will then add you to the whats app group for Mahjong so don’t for get you telephone number.

Hope to see you on this event!
