MARCH 2021

March is Women’s Month so let’s begin with a few inspiring comments:

“If there is one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your voice.”

Michelle Obama

“If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.”

Margaret Thatcher

Behind every successful woman is HERSELF!

As we pay tribute to women as daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, friends, mentors, professionals (this and so much more), let us remember the countless hours of work, the endless hours of enjoyment and satisfaction–a woman’s day, a woman’s life.

Our monthly events—Fine Arts, Nutrition and the Literary Club continue but in February we had our first (lots of firsts lately!) virtual pitta-cutting as a way of “getting together” and welcoming the new year as well as our new members. We hope 2021 will be full of health, joy and happy moments for each one of us, our families, and for AWOG too.

VIRTUALLY SPRING, our first (another first!) fundraiser of 2021 will be held April 1-4, on our site www.awog.gr. This will be our opportunity to shop to our hearts’ content from our sponsors’ eshops and to choose among the handmade items created by AWOG members who never seem to run out of ideas!

By the middle of March there will be more information on the Home Page of the AWOG website where you will be able to see our sponsors, but no sneak previews this time. Shopping will begin at 00:01 on April 1 and end at 23:59 on April 4. You will have 96 hours during which you can spend, spend, spend in order to support the individuals and companies that support us. Remember all profits will go to Lighthouse for the Blind for the production of the Odyssey and the Iliad in Braille.
