The Hospitality Committee has planned a fun and festive Holiday Party for 2020. It is not our usual celebration all together sharing food, libations and friendship but in keeping with the tradition of Athenians cooking, baking and bringing their special holiday dishes we have put together a few of our Athena members’ favorite recipes. We hope you will enjoy making them for your family and friends, or just reading them and savoring the memories. 

Here’s to a Happy Holiday season and looking forward to all of us being together again in 2021. 

Stay safe, and know that you are cherished and loved!

Peace, Health and Equality
