Dear St. George's Society members and friends,
Spring is officially here and hopefully unofficially in the temperature as well. With Spring also comes the celebration of our patron saint, St. George. Much like last year, we intend to celebrate St. George's Day with a series of events in the coming two weeks. Please see the below events and event details. We hope that you will participate in the events and celebrate St. George's Day. We look forward to seeing you soon. We also wish to remind you to keep an eye on your inbox and letterbox as further details will be coming regarding events in the month of May to celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
We want to wish a happy Passover to all our Jewish friends and a happy Easter to all our Christian friends!
