50th-90th Anniversary Album Update
Our committee is hard at work collecting information for our Anniversary Album that many of you have seen advertised. While COVID put a long delay on this project, we are happy to announce that we are resuming this project and hope to have it completed in the near future.
For those that have turned in their information for their advertisements over the last several months, please note that your information has been collected and all monies are being held in a separate church account noted for the anniversary.
If you have not submitted an advertisement and wish to do so, please do as soon as possible by visiting the Album section of our church website (wsgoc.org). It is important for all who desire to have a part in this historical endeavor by our parish. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Stacey Karagiorgis at (336) 575-6904.
50th-90th Anniversary Historical Committee Update
As many of you may know, the Historical Committee is hard at work preparing a written history of the Annunciation Parish. We have made good progress in collecting written and oral history through the 1970's. In the coming months, we would like to schedule a series of meetings (in 10 year increments) to capture the milestones and photos of events in our parish from the 1980's to date. As we prepare for these meetings, it would be helpful to each of us if you could bring to the meetings any notes of community activities that you think are important and relevant to our church history. We would also welcome any photos that might document these activities. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to Rita Georgoulias, Helen Bambalis, or Stavros (Stephen) Karagiorgis. We thank you in advance for your help!
AN UPDATE IN REGARDS TO THE 90th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF OUR CHURCH
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the case rise with the Delta Variant, the Anniversary Committee, alongside the Parish Council and Fr. George, has decided to once again postpone our Anniversary gathering. While this was a difficult choice, it seemed that this was the responsible decision to make at this time. We truly want to share this momentous occasion with our entire Annunciation family, but feel it should be at a time where people can freely and comfortably participate. Therefore, once the pandemic settles down, we will once again look at a date to celebrate our community's establishment and storied history.
Additionally, we have once again delayed the production of the Anniversary Album. It has been hard for our Album Committee to meet and prepare the history of our parish when gathering has been so restricted. Therefore, we will continue to take album advertisements from the community through the end of the year (2021). This will give everyone ample time to participate, should they wish.
We look forward to celebrating together soon!
