sharing with each other


The traditional Summer Luncheon is always a wonderful celebration to start off the new year. The 2017 luncheon was an afternoon of Cool Elegance as the AWLC members gathered at the beautiful Country Club Lima Hotel. 

Lunch consisted of a delicious three-course seated meal, preceded by cocktails and canapés. 

It was, as always, a delightful afternoon spent with good friends.


Our annual Summer Luncheon coincided with International Women's Day.  Seventy four AWLC members gathered for the traditional Luncheon at the beautiful Miraflores Park Hotel. 

The Observatory Lounge on the hotel’s 11th floor, with its scenic views of the Pacific Ocean and the city, was the setting for the event, which fairly bubbled with greetings and lively conversation for three and a half hours. 

Our thanks go to Cecilia Alderson for securing the luncheon venue this year and for her attention to all of the details.

A highlight of the Luncheon included a thoughtful, inspiring address, delivered by Katherine Huber, regarding the need for all of us to continue doing whatever we can to further respect, education, and equality for women and girls.


Our thanks go to our dear members who arranged for us to celebrate our traditional Summer Luncheon on Wednesday, March 11, at the Club Waikiki with its beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. 

Seventy-five members attended and enjoyed the wonderful organization of the petit-comité who took care of all of the details, including the décor, the splendid luncheon menu and service and the music that made the afternoon the fun event that it was.

Thank you to the sponsors who provided the door prizes: Colegio Santa Teresita in Pucalpa; Ana Rosa Cárdenas, Professional Photographer; Pastelería San Antonio;  Ethnic Peru Alpaca; and, Rosemarie Arens.
