Philoptochos is in full swing for our 60th anniversary year!  We had a successful planning meeting in September and look forward to being active in delivering great programs to our St. Sophia community and committed to delivering on our philanthropic endeavors.

Reminder that our Orthodox Prison Ministry Drive will continue through to Sunday, October 13th. When you see our lantern of hope, please respond with your heart!  Give as much as you can, as often as you can.  Check out our informational flyer on the candle stand and on the bulletin board!

Sunday, October 20th is our annual Spaghetti Dinner that benefits the Jamesville Dewitt Ecumenical Food Pantry (JDEFP). Come with your family and enjoy the wonderful luncheon utilizing the delicious tomatoes from our Community Garden to make the sauce. Look out for the table on Sunday to get your tickets!

On Saturday, October 19th, Philoptochos is sponsoring a Wine Tour. Philoptochos has procured a bus which will be stocked with food and beverages as we visit three wineries around Cayuga Lake. Stop by our table on Sunday to sign up.  First come, first serve.  The only cost is for the wine tasting tickets. Everything else is covered by Philoptochos.  See Anna Romanowski or Floria Panels for information.

In September, we finished the six week course on Living with Chronic Conditions.  The program was wonderful.  Starting on October 21st and going through Dec. 11th we are co-sponsoring another course: Fall Workout Program scheduled Monday and Wednesdays between 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church.  If you have arthritis, and/or you want to increase your strength, balance and posture come and join us!  It is free of charge. Please contact Liz Steinberg (315) 447-4445 if you would like to join us.

Finally, new members are always welcomed!
