FEBRUARY 2021

Everyone is asking, “Where did the holidays go?  It’s already the second month of the new year!”  In fact, the holidays are behind us and another 11 months lie ahead.

January was a strange month (nothing but strange lately; strange Easter, strange summer, strange holidays, strange, strange, strange) with unusually high temperatures for Attiki, snow in the mountains surrounding Athens followed by unusually low temperatures!  We think we’ve seen everything, but maybe not.

Our monthly events are continuing:  Fine Arts, the Literary Club, and lectures on nutrition and wellness; plans are under way for a virtual pitta-cutting for the new year.

Please remember to pay the 2021 dues to continue your support of AWOG and to participate in the General Election in March.

Following the successful virtual Christmas bazaar last December, AWOG is already planning its first fund raiser of the year, Virtually Spring, currently set for early April.  There will be hand-made items crafted by the Ladies of AWOG as well as a variety of vendors with links to their websites.  All the proceeds will be donated to Lighthouse for the Blind (ΦΑΡΟΣ ΤΥΦΛΩΝ) in Kallithea for the production of Homer’s Odyssey and Iliad in Greek Braille.

We leave you with the words of Agatha Christie:

“An archeologist is the best husband any women can have; the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.”

And on that note, we wish you all a wonderful February and a great Valentine’s Day!
