Greeks know how to embrace the whole world. And their dances show that they hug everyone willing to follow in these musical and optimistic moves!
The traditional Greek festivals always include dancing till dawn and plenty of food. And that’s the reason why Greek-Australians of every age always welcome such meetings.
This time, the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW, established in 1898 for the benevolence of Greek migrants in Australia, hosts the annual Paniyiri so that the elderly Greeks of the Community can show the younger how to celebrate!
The elderly Greeks of Earlwood have found the perfect residence. It offers “accomodation, a homelike environment which provides a warm and caring Greek atmosphere,” as the people of the Community mention themselves.
Their aim is to provide and support some cultural traditions of their homecountry. One of them is the “Paniyiri,” which takes place every year in Earlwood.
People attending this kind of a party will celebrate their Greek roots by dancing, meeting people they already know or even other expatriates, in order to share their dreams and their common Greek-Australian life.
If you fancy participating in this year’s Paniyiri, meet us on Sunday April 22 at 2 Woolcott Street, in Earlwood. If you need any additional details, please feel free to contact Flora Lafazanos at 9718 7195, from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.
