We are preparing
an end-of-the school year event which includes religious songs and poems as well as a theatrical performance designed for
the Orthodox Church School. We need tutors, mentors, behind the “scenes” helpers….and many, many more.
During the following months, in addition to our regular Sunday school lessons, we will work on this religious project which
is a spiritual, cultural, gratifying and fun opportunity for all. We need your help; for details please contact Ergini Batistatos-Martnishn,

"Because EYE care for you!" Please donate your old prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, or any other glasses that
you have at home and do not use. Your recycled glasses can make a happy difference in a destitute person’s life. PAREA
will donate the glasses to the Lion's Club through a local eye center. It costs the Lion's Club less than US $0.08 to provide
someone in a developing country with a pair of recycled eyeglasses that can change their life for the better. During the
month of February, PAREA will have a box marked with a pair of eyeglasses located in the Church Hallway. Please help us gather
as many pairs as we can! "Because EYE care for you!" Questions: Marina Blair-tel:703-349-1842
