I try to always listen to my superiors so when Jane said that I should explain my absence I decided to put aside my usual practice of keeping my various volunteer activities separate.

Last weekend was the 36th annual Oakland Greek Festival sponsored by the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Ascension.

We had three glorious sun-filled days of food, music, food, dance, food, shopping, and more food, including delectable pastries baked with love and the BEST lamb sandwich money can buy.

The event was the culmination of months of planning by the Festival Executive Committee (on which I sit) and weeks of hard-work by multitudes of church volunteers. You can read Angela Hill's report for the Contra Costa Times for a full overview of the event.
