Paramus Sunrise Rotary Dines At St. John The Theologian 42nd Greek Festival


Greek Festival
When Paramus Sunrise Rotary learned the date of this year's 'A Taste Of Greece' Festival at St. John The Theologian in Tenafly, the club decided to have their monthly International Dinner there. The club visits ethnic food places to celebrate the internationality of Rotary. Of course the fact the Father Peter Lekkas is a member of their Rotary Club helped to make that decision. The Rotarians and their guests were well satisfied and left with sated stomachs and delicious desserts!

Father Peter always blesses the function and the congregants. In addition, he holds a ribbon cutting ceremony which adheres to the colors of Greece. At the ribbon cutting ceremony, he invites local dignitaries as well as those from the surrounding area. Cutting the ribbon were County Executive Kathleen Donovan and Father Peter. In attendance were Mayors Paul Tomasko of Alpine, Joseph Parisi, Jr. of Englewood Cliffs and Peter Rustin of Tenafly with church dignitaries present. Congressman Bill Pascrell was scheduled to attend, but received an urgent call to return to Washington, DC to attend to a pending bill that was up for vote. His dedication to his congressional position is to be admired especially since he is in a difficult primary campaign and needs all the votes that he can garner.

The food has always been special at the church: lamb shank, moussaka, pastitsio, mezedakia, Greek salad, tyropita, spankopita, keftedes, sides of feta cheese, orzo, dolmades, giant Greek olives and taramosalata. If you would like to know what they are, you will have to visit Saint John The Theologian and try them for yourself.

While there, the kids can go on the rides outside or visit the white elephant sale downstairs or visit the specialty boutiques on display. Taking up a whole side and corner was Nancy and George Amir, of Woodland Park Jewelers and Boutique.

Of course the deserts are fantastically Greek. Set your GPS for St. John The Theologian, 353 East Clinton Avenue, Tenafly, NJ 06760 and enjoy the fun for the entire family. www.tasteofgreece.org  The Festival is open 12 PM to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 12 PM to 9 PM on Sunday when the raffle for the 2012 BMW 5281 is drawn. If you can't park on the grounds, there is free parking at the JCC next door with a free shuttle to the church.
