To the Editor
Annually, a very large number of churches sponsor a fund-raising festival. Some of these have already been held for 2007 (Florida). In my extensive travels throughout the USA I have attended many.
They generally go by the names of Greek Fest, Greek Festival, Opa Festival, Hellenic Festival and even a Ya’sou Festival.
However the most classic and descriptive name I have seen is the one used by the Hellenic Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, Buffalo, NY last year, namely THE HELLENIC HERITAGE FESTIVAL.
If your festival is more than souvlaki, dancing, gift shops and ouzo, perhaps you too would consider adopting this name.
