Annual Picnic on 27/2/2019 "Clean Monday"


Come join us at our annual picnic on 27/2/2019 at 9.a..m.

 

This is our Annual Clean Monday Picnic.  The picnic is a tradition of our organization which dates back several decades to celebrate Clean Monday known as  “Kathari Deftera,”  in Greek .  

 

Clean Monday, is considered to be one of the most important dates in the Greek Orthodox Calendar and marks each year the commencement of the 40-day period of the Great Lent which is called “Sarakosti.” In Greece it is celebrated with outdoor excursions, the consumption of shellfish and other fasting foods, as well as the widespread custom of building and flying kites.  

 

This year our picnic will be held once again at Glenelg beach in front of the Stamford Grand Hotel.

 

Our members and their families will gather there as from 9.a.m. to enjoy a dayout full of fun and games. For those wishing to take part please bring your own refreshments, food, chairs or rugs. 

 

This promises to be a fun filled event with many games and fun competitions.

Friends and supporters are all welcome. Come join us for  for this traditional event.
