Over the past few years The Glenview Greek Fest has grown and developed from its reinstitution as an indoor fest to full blown outdoor festival with food tents, carnival attractions, and wonderful community involvement. This year looks to continue that development and growth.
Thank you to those from SS Peter and Paul who joined the Ascension Parish for their Feast Day Vespers and Divine Liturgy in Lincolnshire, where their new Church building was open for the first time. Cross-parish support is an important part of how we live the faith! Thank you to Chris Atsaves, the athletics coaches, and our student athletes for another outstanding year of sport and sportsmanship in our Christ-centered arenas.
On Saturday, June 22, nine of our members were blessed to be able to serve lunch to a very grateful group of people who went to Evanston’s First Presbyterian church for lunch.
The outreach event was to prepare and serve a meal to about 90 guests. There were 7 helpers: Jim and Ann Gottreich, Brad and Doreen DeSent, Jim and Wendee Schavocky, and Joanne Trahanas.
This year Father decided to pass an extra basket every Sunday during Lent to support our many Outreach Committee events.
We were able to cover the Spring college care packages that were sent to 60 people, we sponsored a complete lunch at a Sunday soup kitchen and a sack lunch. Thank you for your support.
Our Athletics program had a full year this year! Between Basketball and Jr. Olympics, our trophy case is really filling up! It was a great season for all of our basketball teams from 1st grade through High School. All of our teams played their hearts out and had a lot of fun.
