June Garden Luncheon

Our last official group function until fall was a wonderful garden luncheon on the grounds of the Pamakaristos Convent. About 60 Newcomers enjoyed the beautiful venue, gorgeous weather and Minda's delicious food.

Even with an injured toe, Minda makes the best food in town! If you enjoyed the food and the great service, this is the lady to thank.

And here's our hostess with the mostest. From organizing the Chinese Auction to bringing the background music, she did it all. Great job, Cathy!

The Chinese Auction offered over 30 items for the ladies to buy chances on. Oooo, I hope I win that bracelet!

Halina and Alesia show off a few of the items up for auction.

Mgsr. Brabeck drew the first name. No peeking now!!!

And most importantly, the reason we hold these events is to support our charity, the Pamakaristos School in Nea Makri. Cathy and Chrisula present a check to Sister Irini for 750 euros that was raised at our recent Easter Bazzar. It is such a joy to help out these special ladies and this worthwhile cause. And today we got to enjoy their hospitality and spectacular gardens.
