With a wonderful smile and hug your greeted anywhere you go. We started our visit this time, inside the dining hall, where we had cafeteria style Greek food line. Everything from Moussaka too Spanakopita awaited us. Following diner, sweets served by the sweet ladies of the church were served up. The fresh homemade food fill our belly’s while the sounds of Greek music and the dancing by young parishioners entertained us. It’s a family affair and everyone is at home here. Throughout the evening, you’re invited to dance.
