BULLETIN

Dollard-des-Ormeaux International Day

SUNDAY, August 19, 2018, at Centennial Park, DDO
Rain or shine
12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This unique event brings people together from different origins to celebrate the diversity and culture of our community. The cultural performances will leave you fascinated. Come and discover interesting treasures from the communities and learn interesting fun facts. You will also have the chance to sample traditional food. This event is a great opportunity to socialize with your neighbours and people from other cultural backgrounds.

The Greek Orthodox Community of West Island will participate in this event, as we have done for the past 8 years. We will prepare on-site BBQ souvlakis  along with  spanakopita and tiropita on pita bread for about 600 persons. All communities in the DDO district will prepare their traditional food.

Every Community will present their native dances on stage for about 7 minutes. We expect our Youth Group to be present and present our Greek Dances.

Food is free and it will be served from 3 to 4 PM

Anybody from our Greek Community who is willing to volunteer in this event, please contact Costas by email (costasca@videotron.ca)
