Winter seems to be behind us, spring has sprung, and summer lies ahead! What more could anyone hope for?
AWOG has been busy with various activities.
In March, three events worth mentioning took place.
- On International Women’s Day, March 8, we had a live conversation on ZOOM with the Archivist of the American College of Greece, Dr. Demetra Papaconstantinou, about women’s education in the United States in the nineteenth century and how some of the ideas prevalent then were “transferred” to Europe and Asia. If you missed it, you can still watch the entire presentation by clicking on the link on the AWOG Home Page at awog.gr
- The following week in March, there was an AWOG meeting of the ladies from three areas: Psyhiko, Halandri/Aghia Paraskevi and Papagou/Holargos. It was held at the Halandri Tennis Club and, with approximately 30 members present, was a huge success. Coffee, chitchat, and future plans for philanthropic ventures!
- Fifty Heart Pillows were donated to the General Kratiko Hospital of Nikaia for mastectomy patients. The pillows were sewn by Arianna Touloumtzi and were delivered by Arianna and Community Services Chair Anna Vlagopoulou. The hospital was very appreciative of the donation.
April brings Easter, and along with it, church services, candles, bunnies, dyed eggs and Easter bonnets. It’s also an opportunity for short trips to the countryside and/or abroad for a short or long getaway.
After both Easters have come and gone (April 9 and 16), AWOG will have its first General Assembly of 2023 on April 27—registration beginning at 10:30 a.m.–at the Athinais Hotel near Platia Mavili. Both the Ambelokipi Metro station and the Megaro Mousikis Metro station are very convenient to the venue. The agenda for the General Assembly, open to AWOG members only, can be found in the April Bulletin.
Until the General Assembly, enjoy time with family and friends and Happy Easter to all!,
