AWOG Activities

SAVE THE DATE   …

the annual AWOG Christmas Bazaar is coming!

SUNDAY, November 26th

11 am – 7 pm  Athens War Museum

Area Meetings

We meet monthly in smaller groups in neighborhoods in Attiki. You can join an AWOG area  in:

Glyfada, Halandri-Aghia Paraskevi, Papagou-Holargos, Psychiko.  

This is a way for members to meet in smaller groups on a monthly basis in members homes. It is also a way to make friends in your neighborhood.  Working women who cannot attend area meetings can receive all monthly news via our google board group once you sign up for the notifications.

Meetings

Regular meetings are scheduled each month  for the entire membership, usually the third week  of each month, at a centrally located venue in Athens for easy access for all of our membership.  We hold a General Assembly each March, and an additional Extraordinary General Assembly for elections in November every two years.  Our next elections will be in November.  All members are urged to come and participate in the General Assemblies.

 

Special Activities and Events

Our special activities are a way for us to get together and enjoy each other’s company.  Many of our events are open to non-AWOG members, friends, husbands and partners.  There is also a monthly Fine Arts program organized by our Fine Arts Chairperson.

Heart Pillow Stuffing Party Saturday, October 21st

        

  

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  On Saturday, October 21st, you are invited to come and stuff it.  A heart pillow that is.  The goal is to prepare another 100 pillows to deliver to the hospitals we cooperate with to distribute heart pillows to mastectomy patients.  The pillow itself is a tool used for both physical comfort and psychological support.  Placed under the arm, it cushions the arm and the chest, sensitive from surgery.  And patients can hold the pillow in place to both comfort the physical ache and give them something to squeeze.  In pretty, bright colors the pillows are made with love to offer support and empathy. 


Fine Arts outing set for Tuesday, October 31st
