PRESIDENT'S NEW MESSAGE

Dear Fellow Evrytanians,

I hope everyone is well and has had a healthy and safe summer. Many were able to take some welldeserved vacations after a year of restrictions. As we continue to struggle with coronavirus, please remember to keep taking necessary precautions to stay healthy. By the time you receive this issue, we will have had our first Board of Trustees meeting for 2021-2022. We begin the year eager to further the charitable work of the Velouchi and to do what is best for the membership. During the meeting, we will be drawing the raffle tickets for our annual scholarship fundraiser with the lucky winners to be announced soon thereafter.
