Our Ladies Philoptochos is looking forward to begin our Ecclesiastical Year with you. We created this sign-up genius with a few of our upcoming events.
First, we have our Welcome Back Meeting (6-8PM) Monday, September 12th in our church hall. For this meeting we will serve a light meal and beverages. All are welcome.
On Tuesday, September 20th, our church will host again our District Clergy breakfast & luncheon. If you are available to help in any way, please sign-up and we will contact you. We need someone to help with the breakfast and to help with the luncheon in various ways.
Last, our Festival of Tables is our biggest fundraiser and most of all we highlight a charity that is dear to our hearts. It is a lovely afternoon at the Amber Room, many ladies help prepare, everything is donated. Tons of raffles, delicious food, great company and most of all whatever is made goes to help others. Please consider donating a raffle, hosting a table (we will help you if you haven't hosted before). Please let Eleni Manolakes, Caryn Flannery or Ourania Carino know if you want to host a table or donate a raffle!
Please join us, bring a friend. It’s a wonderful afternoon. The date is (1st Saturday in November, 11/05) $50 PP - prepaid only.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
To ensure the highest level of care and daily living for residents, becoming involved in our mission can enhance the care received and contribute to a greater quality of life for the residents of the facility. From volunteering your time and talents, visiting the residents, or making a donation, the Home welcomes the community and thanks our supporters for helping us with our sacred mission. Your support can make a significant impact on our ability to continue providing the highest quality care. In the near future, we look forward to increasing the number of elderly we can service and increasing the level of care we can provide. We believe strongly in respecting our elders by building an establishment that is worthy of our rich heritage, one that views caring for the elderly as an honorable privilege and not an obligation.
