21 The Agora, or market place, also will be open. Tours of St. Paul’s will be conducted and there will be lectures about the Greek Orthodox religion presented Thursday and Friday at 6 and 7 p.m. and on Saturday at 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 5 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. There will be a raffle with chances to win a digital camera, a 19-inch color television or a stereo system with CD and cassette players. There also will be a silent auction, with a painting and Persian rugs as some of the offerings. Get there early to ensure you get your favorite foods. It all goes quickly, and some items, particularly pastries, sell out. “Many things sell out, in spite of our heroic efforts,” Stavriotis says. “We have a policy that what doesn’t sell is offered to church members at a discount on Sunday. “That’s very popular, but disappointing,” she says. “There’s no Baklava left. We all dash over there and line up, but there isn’t nearly as much as we hope.” ◗

This year’s entertainment will be provided by Nick Trivelas and A Night in Athens, featuring George Antonopoulos on bouzouki. They will provide authentic Greek music throughout the festival. St. Paul’s has three dance groups that will perform. The adult troupe is Zoe, which means “life.” Zoe will perform Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., and Saturday at noon, 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. There are two children’s groups -- Ta Pethia, which means “the children” and the Zorba Dancers, who are teens. They will perform Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m. “They start as early as kindergarten -little ones,” Stavriotis says. “If they learn to do that early, they are more likely to do it as teens.” Another group, the Goya dancers, will perform Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. You’ll get a chance to work off all that food you’ve eaten because the audience will be invited to dance. “The audience is invited to dance along, and some do,” Stavriotis says. “The girls from St. Vincent’s come over for lunch and they always dance.” The Bakaliko, or Greek grocery store, will offer Greek food items that can’t be found in Savannah, including cheese, olives, olive oil and coffee. “We import it from New York by the tractor-trailer load,” Stavriotis says.
