APRIL 2022

April showers, puddles, spring flowers, daffodils and crocuses, tulips and narcissus the Resurrection service, Greek Orthodox Easter, red eggs, lamb on the spit sunshine, outdoor activities, thinking ahead to summer…..

All this and so much more during the month of April.  After a lengthy period of cold, wet and snowy weather, we look towards the light.  Longer and warmer days are ahead, and we look forward to meeting in person once again.

April is a busy month for AWOG.  Our first LIVE General Assembly is scheduled for April 14 at the Caravel Hotel at 11:00.  Once the business part is over, members and guests will be able to sit down together to a delicious buffet luncheon.  Reservations/payment must be made in advance.  See your area rep for more information.

Then, on April 24, Greek Orthodox Easter is the culmination of Holy Week.  May this Easter be a time for getting together with family and friends whom we haven’t seen for many months.

SNEAK PREVIEW FOR MAY:  A Mother’s Day event is being planned—on May 12–for all AWOG members at the Café of the Byzantine and Christian Museum (Leof. Vasilissis Sofias 22—right next door to the War Museum). A la carte orders will be taken on the spot. In order for you to be fully informed about the venue, attached is a link to a video (made for the Athens City Times and Alexia Amvrazi) which describes the main building of the museum, the café and gardens, and the archaeological area right below the café.
