The period 2009-10 was a busy time for the FoP. Amongst other activities we supported local voluntary organisations: a joint event with AMEAI, the centre for people with special needs; and, a fund raising evening in favour of ALKYONI. For the eighth year running we organised the annual event of FoP in which, this year, we honoured the young farmers of Paros. We also published two issues of the e-Bulletin and launched a new website.
Through the FoP’s role as a “think tank”, as well as through concrete actions, our organisation contributes towards maintaining the character of Paros and achieving a balanced development. The FoP work closely with other local associations and in this context have promoted the idea of a public debate between all mayoral candidates in the local elections of November 2010 and representatives of the local associations, based on common questions on the major issues of concern to our island.
Our report on 2009-10 and our plans for 2010-11 are presented on www.friendsofparos.com.
