2019 Christmas & New Year Carols – Κάλαντα Χριστουγέννων & Πρωτοχρονιάς
We are very happy to report the Κάλαντα sing-along caravans were a huge success. Just under 20 Hellenic Academy of York singers visited many homes including a long term care facility, spreading Greek Orthodox Christmas Cheer in our communities. Congratulations to all involved for taking the time out from your busy holiday schedules. Your efforts taught our young participants the importance of giving during the holiday season and brought much joy and happiness to so many families. At times it was an emotional and touching experience, which I am sure provided memories that will not soon be forgotten. It is our hope that this tradition be continued for years to come. Once again thank you to all participants.
