Visit to the Greater Astoria Historical Society
Please join WJOA for our monthly trivia night at Sek'end Sun on Monday, 7/30. Please note: we will meet at 6:45pm, which is an hour earlier than trivia nights in the past, as Sek'end Sun changed the start time. RSVP to Zahava and Facebook invite coming soon.
WJOA Hike at Mount Beacon Park
If you were not able to join us on 7/15, you are in luck! Due to the weather, the hike has been rescheduled for Sunday, 8/19. Please join WJOA in a hike at Mount Beacon Park in the Hudson Valley. We will be meeting in Astoria at 9:45am to travel together up to the park. We plan on exploring and taking a leisurely hike followed by dinner nearby. RSVP to Dov (firstname.lastname@example.org) and check out the Facebook event.
