Calling Melbourne Cephalonian youth

first_imgA dinner dance held by the Cephalonian Society of Victoria is set to rock West Melbourne next Saturday night. The night will include stand-up comedian Jim Liamatos, the Manasis dancing group entertaining the crowds with traditional dance, the Greek band Xrises Notes will be providing the dancing tunes and there will be raffle prizes, catering by Meraklis and the night will be filmed for Channel 31 for a new Greek show called ‘Peter, are you serious?’ Peter Diakrousis – assistant treasurer of the Cephalonian Society – says this dinner dance is a great opportunity for the youth to get involved once again and explore their cultural heritage. “I am trying to create a young group,” he told Neos Kosmos, “teach the young all about Cephalonia – the island and its culture; its food and wine; its sweets sold around the world.” He says by involving the youth, he can teach them about Cephalonian traditions and dancing but also they can help keep the club alive. By getting involved in the Cephalonian Society of Victoria, youth will be able to network with other members, stay in touch with Cephalonians in Greece for easy travel advice, as well as network with members in Victoria in a professional capacity too. As it stands, there are only about four young members of the society and through getting the youth involved, Peter says the club will stay stronger than ever. The Cephalonian Dinner Dance will be held on Saturday 23 June at the Cephalonian Society of Victoria, 16-20 Stawell Street, West Melbourne. Tickets are $55 and include music and food. For tickets and for more information on joining the Cephalonian Society of Victoria, contact Peter on 0411 230 675. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img
