Community Connect Athens has been running for many years as a monthly Coffee Morning whereby members of the community can meet up in a warm and safe place to comfortably sit, chat and have a cup of coffee and a slice or two of cake. Anyone is welcome and many people who find it difficult to get out on a daily basis make a special effort to come to these Coffee Mornings and catch up on all the latest gossip and news.
More often than not we have a Raffle for 50 cents a number or Mini Bingo for two euro a game, and someone will always be seated on the “Lucky Chair’! Special occasions during the year are marked with a themed decoration or cake –New Year – Cutting of the Vasilopita (New Year’s Cake), Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and of course Christmas – Cutting of the Christmas Cake. Birthdays are also celebrated in a spirit of warmth and friendship.READ MORE
