PETER GARDIANOS BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE AT LADIES’ PHILOPTOCHOS “JUNE SOCIAL” Monday, June 13, 2011

The Ladies’ Philoptochos’ philanthropic season ended with a bang at the year-end party in the White Hall. Rising Three Hierarchs Superstar Peter Gardianos brought down the house by singing a medley of popular Greek and English songs, putting everyone in high spirits. This followed another successful voluntary gig at the Senior Club recently. Amidst great hilarity, Father Eugene Pappas dragged what he called the DOO-OP girls…Helen Gardianos, Kay Diamond and Florence Gold…up to the microphone to join in. Gus Ziotas and Fotini Daniel felt inspired to do a few fancy steps on the dance floor. Gus and Father Eugene rewarded Peter by stuffing some twenty-dollar bills into his pocket ( or were they one-dollar bills? And did somebody say they took them back???).

Father Eugene congratulated outgoing President Alexandra (Sandy) Diolis for her hard work and accomplishments, and welcomed new President (for the third time!) Mary Plessias, and called the Board members up to be introduced.

As all this took place guests enjoyed a scrumptious dinner of roast chicken, lemon potatoes, spanakopita, Greek salad and wine, followed by two delicious sheet cakes, Greek pastry, coffee and fruit. It was an evening of good food, fun and laughter before the long summer break.

The Philoptochos meets one Monday a month to plan various charitable endeavors, starting in September, and is always delighted to welcome new members.

GUS ZIOTAS CELEBRATES NAMEDAY AT SENIOR CLUB MEETING Wednesday, May 25, 2011

It was Party Time in the White Hall as Gus (Constantinos) Ziotas very generously celebrated his nameday by treating the entire Senior Club to lunch. A delicious hot meal from Perry’s Restaurant, accompanied by wine, was followed by a scrumptious sheet cake, pastry and coffee. As an added surprise, Peter Gardianos put on some lively Greek music and sang a variety of traditional Greek songs, to everyone’s delight. It got Kay Diamond and Fotini Daniel up on their feet to do a little sirto and tsamiko! Peter later said he got two more gigs as a result!!!

This was just one of the wonderful experiences enjoyed by the Senior Club this year, which included special Holiday lunches, exercise classes, exhibits, lectures and demonstrations, a Chinese Auction, and trips to the movies and other places. If you would like to become a member and share in these good times, have an enjoyable place to look forward to every Wednesday afternoon from 1 pm to 3 pm, and make new friends who will quickly become like a second family, please come down to one of the meetings starting in September. We are always very happy to welcome new members!

MR., MRS. & MS. CLUB ENJOYS EASTER DINNER Tuesday, May 17, 2011

The Mr., Mrs. & Ms Club celebrated Easter all over again as they enjoyed a delicious dinner from Perry’s Restaurant consisting of roast lamb, pot roast, potatoes, spanakopita, Greek salad, pastry and Easter candy. The Easter Bunny, personified by President Sylvia Vellios and Rose Palividas, went around with beautiful Easter baskets containing gifts for everyone: Sylvia’s traditional gold Easter eggs, and packets of Easter candy from Rosie. In honor of Mother’s Day, the Most Fabulous Female of the Year was picked at random. This year’s winner was Joyce Mitchell, who received a beautifully wrapped present from Sylvia. Was she lucky enough to get one of Sylvia’s own hand knitted creations? It was an evening of fun and comraderie among good long-time friends.
