Last year’s event at St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church was so much fun, we could not wait to go back this year. The children were just as precious and we recognized some of them. I talked to one of the older boys and he told me that they practice every Sunday. You can tell.It was fun just to watch the dancers, but last year I joined in when everyone was invited to participate. We met a gentleman named Will Beason and he was getting some last minute instruction before he and his friends joined the fun.
I never did catch on, but Will looked great! Tom took lots of photos that we sent to some of the dancing stars.We loved the music, and sampled some of the gourmet cuisine. My favorite was the Spanakopita, spinach with feta cheese and Greek herbs baked in layers of filo. We also tried the Dolmades, rolls of beef, rice and herbs wrapped in grape leaves. We picked up a few souvenirs and look forward to next year.
