Saturday, December 19, 2009

The festive season continued this weekend when Agios Vasilis visited the Mytilenian Brotherhood of Perth and Western Australia for his annual gift-giving visit to children. 

Member and guest filled the the Mytilenian House, in Morley. The children's anxious wait was finally relieved upon the arrival of Agios Vasilis (i.e Mihalis Manios), who was given a rousing welcome.

The festive atmosphere was complimented the the singing of the Kalanda (Christmas songs), as members and guests helped themselves to sweets and drinks. 

"It is wonderful to see so many children decorate this afternoon with their joyous presence," said Brotherhood President, Evangelos Gavalas.

"I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this afternoon's great day. Special thanks to those who donated a gift for Agios Vasilis' gift-giving," he continued. 

The afternoon finished as the President and his Committee wished members and guests a wonderful festive season, and for 2010 to be a year of good health, joy, peace and prosperity.
