Church hosts another successful Grecian Festival

M  church hosts grecian festivalMarlborough – Members of the dance troupe “Greek Pride of Rhode Island” perform for guests Aug. 31, the first day of the three-day eighth annual Grecian Festival held on the grounds of Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church. Among the selections on an extensive menu prepared by volunteers were lamb and chicken kebobs, gyros, Greek salad and stuffed grape leaves, with baklava ice cream sundae for dessert. Proceeds from past festivals helped build the community center known as Hellenic Hall, which opened in 2011 following a fire in 2001. This year's proceeds will help support Hellenic Hall with mortgage payments and planned additions such as classrooms for Sunday school.
