2016 GREEK FEST Thank you!
Our clergy Fr. Ted, Fr. George, Grecian Festival Committee Chairmen Blair Mihalakis and Tommy Papadopoulos, Parish Council President Elias Ploutis, along with the entire Parish Council and Grecian Festival Committee, would like to express their sincere GRATITUDE and THANKS to everyone who cooperated and gave so unselfishly of their time and talent. Our entire parish owes a deep debt of gratitude to the very few members who worked so hard and long to put together and run this year’s Fest. There is a special place in heaven for all of you!
Special thanks and a deep appreciation go to all our numerous donors of lambs, baked goods and other items on our wish list. Again, thank you to everyone for his or her support, commitment, hard work and cooperation. Once again, we had fewer parishioners volunteering, and higher costs, this year’s Fest, even though it raised funds that are needed for operating and maintaining our parish, our gain was lower and our goals were far from being reached.
A Wrap Up Meeting will take place on Thursday, August 25 at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the Greek Fest and our declining numbers. All committee chairpersons are requested to attend, as well as any parishioners who have concerns about food, security, music, etc. We will review this year’s results and lay out plans for next year’s Grecian Festival, which is set for July 14-16, 2017. Mark your calendars!

Congratulations to all our winners! A very huge thank you to all who participated in this year’s Raffle, either by selling or purchasing them.
LAMB DONATIONS: 484 lambs were donated for this year’s Grecian Festival. That was 84 more than our goal. Great job everyone! We would like to thank those people and organizations who donated for their support. Without you our Festival would suffer greatly financially due to the decline of revenue from food sales. God bless one and all. Again, THANK YOU!
