Daphne Reece gave us a history of Newcomers over the past 25 years and Chrisula Kolokouris gave a presentation on Pammacaristos, our current charity. We had 76 attendees including some of our regular sponsors who were honored with a rose for their commitment to Newcomers. Yiannis Vathis was also presented with a rose in thanks for his continued support of Newcomers in allowing us to use his taverna. Beautiful silver floating-heart necklaces (symbolizing the silver anniversary of Newcomers and Valentine's Day) were presented to all of the volunteers from the past year. Sydney presented all the volunteers with roses to thank them for their service. The presentation of gifts was followed by a delicious chocolate cake which was baked and donated by Robin Hionis and champagne. The champagne was a bit hit! All members were presented with a chocolate heart with "25" in icing, also made by Robin Hionis.
