A Taste of Greece For more than 30 years, St. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church has invited the Valley to partake in every aspect of Greek culture during A Taste of Greece. The celebration included entertainment, traditional Greek cuisine and drinks, a kids’ zone with bounce houses and a marketplace with crafts and goods. STSN photos by Tim Sealy
