By Margaret Yates (President)
We are blessed in so many different ways, one of the most important being the ability to give to those less fortunate. The Christmas season is especially busy as we increase our efforts to make the season brighter for those who otherwise would not have a hot meal or any gifts under the tree.
We are truly blessed, not only for the many blessings we have received in our own lives, but for the ability to assist those less fortunate who are in need of a helping hand. May God bless the hands and hearts of each Philoptochos member in our Metropolis.
A sincere thank you to Margaret Yates for the dedicated leadership she has given our Metropolis as Metropolis Philoptochos President for the past 4 years. Your Philoptochos sisters are truly proud of the job you and your fellow Philoptochos Board members have done.
