Beating the Sunday Night Blues

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Keeping up their reputation of well-run, successful Nights, the Antissian Association of N.S.W held its inaugural Panygiri tis Liodas social dance- vividly capturing the festive atmosphere of the actual panygiri in the Antipodes. 

Despite the social dance being held on a Sunday night, Antissians and friends alike turned up and packed the Cyprus Community Club for a Night of wining, dining and dancing.

Antissian President, John Loukadellis, explained to the crowd that attending the Panygiri tis Liodas during last year;s holiday in Greece inspired the idea to capture its festivity here in Sydney. And it certainly did...

Highlights for the Night were: an Antissian special guest all the way from Perth, Emanuel Petrellis- who spoke on the importance of maintaining our socio-historical identity; a rousing speech from the Antissian Association's first President, Prokopis Ersetelos; and the vast variety of prizes in the raffle.
