A big seasonal THANKS to our many free door prize sponsors: the Canadian embassy ( ) for 4 t-shirts celebrating 70 Years of Canada-Greece diplomatic relations; Methymnaeos Organic Wines of Lesbos ( ) for a bottle of organic red wine; Butcher Shop Online ( for a 30-euro meat voucher; Myrenia ( for a Christmas hamper of scented products; Came Photography ( for a free photo shoot and a 30 x 30 wall mount on canvas available to all present; and Andreas Souvaliotis ( ) for four copies of his memoir ‘Misfit’; Andreas was also invited by the ambassador to briefly address the group.
Thanks, as always, to Tsipouradiko Neo Elleniko, for their special 4-euro Friends of Canada special. Heartfelt appreciation goes to THE GUESTS for their generous Christmas treat contributions for our Welfare Network, which collaborates with the Salvation Army; the sweets will be added to Christmas food hampers for those in need.
We were also delighted that the event was attended by Canadian Ambassador to Greece, Robert Peck, and spouse, Maria Pantazi Peck.
Here’s wishing you all a blessed holiday season, no matter what your faith.
