While we all love the summertime, things are a little different than usual this year due to necessary standards, but that doesn’t mean we want to sit around and do nothing.
So the big question is “what is there to do this summer?!”
A group of our WBC members were able to share some ideas on how to keep busy, while staying safe:
Go to an Italian, Greek, or Armenian Drive-Thru Food Festival!
St. Sophia is having Greek Feast on July 10th, 11th and 12th.
