The Cranbrook GoGo Grannys are starting their fundraising year with another excellent travelogue by the Pfieffers.

“The Best of Greece” is a visual tour by Gebhart and Sabine Pfeiffer.

Discover the incredible sites of ancient Greece: Tour Athens to see the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Arch and Temple of Zeus.

Cross the Corinth Canal to the Peloponnesian Peninsula and visit the ruins of the ancient city of Corinth,  Agamemnon’s Palace in Mycenae and the amphitheatre at Epidaurus. Tread the ground where the first Olympics were held in Olympia and consult the oracle of Delphi. Visit Meteora to explore the impressive monasteries perched high on sandstone rocks above town.

Then, a 7 day Aegean cruise across the Marmara Sea to the Bosporus and Istanbul in Turkey, city on 2 continents, visit the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofia.

Cruise to Kusadasi and visit ancient Ephesus, one of the seven churches of the Roman province of Asia.  Cruise to various Islands in the blue Aegean Sea, each with their unique history and beauty, like Crete, Rhodes, Mykonos and volcanic Santorini, before returning to Athens.

The GoGo Grannys group raises funds to offer direct support to Grandmothers in Africa through the Stephen Lewis Foundation.  Many Grandmothers have lost their children and are now raising grandchildren under difficult circumstances.  We support these heros through financial means, education, and medical care. Please visit the Stephen Lewis Foundation website at www.stephenlewisfoundation.org/get-involved/grandmothers-campaign to learn more about our Granny’s campaign.  If you have a lot of time or a little time, you can make a unique contribution to our group and we would love to welcome you.  Our next meeting is at 7:00 January 27th at  the Superstore Community Room.  Please call Norma if you have any questions.
