Activities and Programs
St. David's Welsh Society
Our Society meets monthly from September until June on the second Sunday afternoon. Our regular meetings are held at the Dunwoody United Methodist Church and begin at 2pm. Our Social events, some of our programs and classes are held offsite.
September, October, November, January, February, and April:
—We hold our "Standard Monthly Meetings" during these months, which include a short business meeting, a speaker or other program, the singing of "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau", and ending with a social time with tea and light refreshments.
—We hold our Annual Christmas party in the home of one of our members; everyone brings a dish to share and after a time of fellowship and GREAT food, we spend the afternoon in song, skits, and poetry.
—On the Sunday closest to March 1st we hold our St. David's Day Luncheon in one of the Atlanta area's Country Clubs or Ballrooms. This luncheon is a "dress-up affair" and always features a leading speaker from the Welsh or Welsh-American community.
—The Atlanta Celtic Festival is held in May and our Society has a major booth at the festival. The festival has great entertainment and over the last couple years performers such as Sian James; Robin Huw Bowen and Carreg Lafar have represented Wales on the Main Stage.
—June is our 'End of Year Tea', hosted in one our members home. Its a great afternoon to relax with friends and discuss 'Summer Plans'.
