Dear Members and friends,

COVID-19 | Dear members and friends, as COVID-19 has undoubtedly affected the way we now live, the Meteora Thessalias Benevolent Society would like to extend its support and gratitude to the front line staff (doctors, nurses etc.) that are helping to manage this pandemic in Australia. Their tireless work is ensuring the people we love are cared for now and in the coming months.

However, as patrons and influencers in the Greek community, we all as individuals have a part in supporting these front line staff, our family, friends and community by helping to ensure that its spread is contained and reduced.

To do this, we need to ensure that everyone of all ages in the Greek community are informed about what they need to do to keep themselves, their family and their friends safe. To this end, I would like to draw our members’ and friends’ attention to some of the resources published by NSW Health in Greek to share around including Hygiene Etiquette and Social Distancing.

A link to all trusted information by NSW Heath can be found here: https://preview.nsw.gov.au/covid-19

Finally, we would like to extend our wishes for everyone to keep safe during this time, and together we can #flattenthecurve for all Australians.

TAVERNA FUNDRAISER SUCCESS | On Friday 21 February 2020, Meteora members and friends came together over a feast at Yia Mas Greek Taverna to raise a total of $836 for Lifeline Australia. Thank you to everyone that came along and to those that contributed to the cause! Lifeline is such a noble organisation that is doing incredibly rewarding work across Australia, especially following the devastating bushfire season!

Please enjoy some of the photos from the evening, and please keep an eye out for future events!

GREEK STUDIES SPONSORSHIP | In an effort to further the education of Greek studies in Australia, Meteora recently sponsored MUGA – Macquarie University Greek Association‘s 35th Anniversary Ball that successfully raised $37,000 for the Modern Greek Studies program at Macquarie University! Congratulations to everyone involved in such an amazing initiative and a successful evening!
