The day started with the morning service and spiritual message delivered by Fr. Mesrop Ash.  The lunch was served at noon; more than 175 people attended and enjoyed the food and fellowship.

Its Time to Organize

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

Organize and Thrive was a free life changing presentation by Christina Ardemis. Christina Ardemis discussed the matter of organizing things in your home and work and how it makes you feel less stressed and happy. Fifty eager people attended Organize and Thrive and we hope that they all took the information and advice and applied them to their own circumstances. Christina Ardemis is a professional organizer, Vice-Chair of St. Johns Ladies Society and she sings in the choir. What a skilled and talented woman if I do say so my self.
