MAY 2021

HAPPY MAY DAY!
HAPPY EASTER!
HAPPY ST. GEORGE’S DAY!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

We begin with warmer weather, renewed energy and the hope that our lives will begin to resemble those of past Mays.  Following the success of our fundraiser in early April, we were able to keep our promise to Lighthouse for the Blind and they can now progress with the production of the Odyssey and the Iliad in Braille.

The first AWOG General Assembly for 2021 took place on Zoom and the Literary Club began its reading and discussion of memoirs with Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast.

After celebrating Easter with our loved ones, we will continue our online activities during the month of May with the Literary Club, a lecture on nutrition and a possible surprise event on Zoom.

However you decide to spend Easter, stay safe and enjoy.  This year on May 3rd you will have the opportunity to offer wishes to all the Georges and Georgias in your lives; and there are certainly many of them!  Remember Mother’s Day on May 9th by thanking your mother for every hug, word of encouragement or act of love she has given you throughout the years.  Or take some moments to reflect on the woman who was so important in your life.

God could not be everywhere,
And therefore, he made mothers.
RUDYARD KIPLING

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best,
but his mother the longest.
