Welcome to the new session of the Scottish Hellenic Society. I hope you will enjoy the talks the Committee has arranged for this session and that you will be able to attend regularly. Our venue will continue to be at St. Luke’s Greek Cathedral, 27 Dundonald Road, Dowanhill, Glasgow G12 9LL, with the exception of the joint SHS Edinburgh meeting which will be held in the conference room of the David Hume Tower at Edinburgh University. The committee will arrange mini-buses for those who wish to attend, a sign-up sheet will be available at our first lecture, alternatively you could contact a committee member direct. There is no car park at St. Luke’s so parking is in the street.
The Society will continue to meet on a Tuesday with the exception of our second meeting, the joint meeting with SHS Edinburgh, which will be held on Monday 05 November, and the Vasilopitta evening which will be held on Wednesday 08 January. As usual at the opening meeting we will have wine and mezedhes.
As we are no longer constrained by janitorial costs and closing-up times, the Committee has decided to continue with our meeting time of 7.30pm and we hope this will be welcomed by all. However, please allow yourself plenty of time to find a parking space! The exception to this is the meeting in Edinburgh; we have to be there for 6 - 6.30pm.
The subscriptions for session 2012-2013 will remain at £15.00 (full member) and student/unwaged membership remains at £5.00 but we ask that you consider the subscription as a minimum contribution; any donation in excess will be gratefully received - and acknowledged.
The lecture programme is set out overleaf. The January meeting will again take the form of a social event - a Vasilopitta evening where we will meet in the Elia Greek Restaurant, cut the New Year cake and enjoy a meal together (details of cost to follow). Please note, as discussed at the AGM there will be no lecture in December this year, instead we have two lectures in November.
We look forward to seeing you in the coming session.
