Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

Come and join us for a lovely lunch at the Panorama Hotel on Wednesday 8th of June at 12:00. Don't miss the opportunity to meet your friends once more before the summer break! We will enjoy a Fashion Show with our very own IWOG models and be entertained by dance demonstrations.


The garments will be from Amma One’s Garment.


“AMMA draws its creative energy from the fact that the name means mother in the colloquial Indian language. We believe that it can serve as a rich source of inspiration within the concept of a “mother” of creative ideas”.


We will have Zumba with IWOG member Despoina Tsoleridou and her team from UCHU (G. Papandreou 94, T. 2310 412221).


And our new member Harileni Papeli from Brazil will demonstrate Latin American dancing!


And of course we will have our Raffle with very special prizes!

Dimitra-Lida Rammou - Biologist Phd in the Susliks explained a few things about susliks that are plenty in the area. Froso Parcharidou - ornithologist (Apus-Apus specialist) and one of the managers of the Action for Wildlife, explained to us the works of the Sanctuary.
