Halloween High Jinks!

by Silvia Lubitz-Skaramagkas, Dec 2000/Jan 2001
Organised by the Paros International Women's Group, our Halloween Party on 31st October was a tremendous success! Around one hundred people attended - many in fabulous costumes - there was a lively atmosphere with lots of dancing and, in addition to having a great time, we raised over 400,000 drachmas for our Paros Health Centre (further detailed info on that next month).

Based on the success of this year's party, we plan to make this an annual fun- & fund-raising event, so if you missed it this year, don't worry - we'll see you next October 31st!

A party, of course, "stands or falls" with the music, and for the "kefi" that night our thanks are due to DJ Angelos (Pele) Trivizas and to Georgos Nikas and his group for the traditional Greek live music performance.

Thanks also to all the Parian guests, our husbands and partners for their patience during the frantic preparations, Wolfgang Lubitz for his lucky wheel, our witches selling the raffle tickets - Christina St?rke, Britta Thelen, Angelica Eder, Rosemarie Lubitz, Yvonne J?nsson and Silvia Lubitz, plus Loni Economou, Dimitris Yorgaros, Sigi Kindt & Karen Barratt for their help, Len & Marilyn Rooks for the stunning photography, Aligaria Restaurant in Naoussa for hosting the event, Elsa and her daughters for the sweets, and to all the women of our group who made the decorations and masks and who gave their time and energy to canvassing for raffle gifts. And, finally, to the fantastic response from local Parian businesses and individuals - we received generous donations from the following:
