November connotes the beginning of the Christmas season including the frenzy of baking, cooking and shopping as well as Thanksgiving, the most popular U.S. holiday for family get-togethers.
For AWOG it connotes the frenetic last touches on a variety of handmade items for our annual Christmas Bazaar which, with the help of our loyal sponsors, will allow us once more to do what we do best: help those in need.
Do ask your friends to support our charity work as all profits from our annual Christmas Bazaar will go to Greek charities.
In other news, the Literary Club continues its discussion of short stories and the Heart Pillow Project had two deliveries in October to Areteio Hospital and Iatriko Kentro Athinon plus one more coming up in early November to the General Hospital of Kalamata.
Hope to “see” you at our Christmas Bazaar, even without the shared camaraderie over a cup of coffee and chit-chat. Remember, without your support, we cannot continue to help our charities!
Wishing all of you a very happy Thanksgiving with loved ones. Remember to count your blessings and be thankful for everything you have.
