G.O.Y.A. NEWS
Hello everybody! In the
past few months, our GOYA has
been active participating in many
great events and are expecting
many more to come. Just a recap
as to what we╒ve been doing in the
past few months:
In January and February:
? We were busy practicing
for the upcoming Sights &
Sounds festival in Westfield,
NJ on March 1, 2014. Sights
& Sounds is a competition in
which individuals and groups
can compete and showcase
their abilities in the arts.
? Group wise, we had a Greek
Dancing group, an American
Singing group, and a Choral
Speaking group. Many of us
performed individually in
other categories.
? In early February, our GOYA
attended the White-Out
Dance in Tenafly, NJ and the
Valentine╒s Dance in Union,
NJ. The White-Out Dance is
a dance that is a fundraiser
for cancer research, and it is a
dance in which GOYAns were
allowed to bring along friends
by Nikiforos Daniskas, Vice President
from school.
In March:
? The Sights & Sounds competition occurred on March 1. We
all had a great time and won
some awards.
? We also participated in our
parish╒s St. John Chrysostom
Oratorical Festival on March
29th.
? Our first place winners advanced to the Regional competition in Flemington, NJ,
where both Spyridoula and
Minas received Honorable
Mentions.
Congratulations to all who participated and on your accomplishments!
? For one of our Lenten activities, a group of GOYAns,
advisors and family members
took a road trip to Agia Skepi
Monastery in White Haven,
PA. We were given a tour of
the monastery by Sister Marina, helped in the bakery to
assemble boxes and attended
evening services at the end of
the day. It was a very enriching and fulfilling experience

2014. Many families and friends of our parishioners were in attendance for a buffet style Cypriot dinner and
dancing with live music by G-Avra Music Productions (George Liristis 908-316-4799). The room was filled
with ?parea?(gathering of friends), ?filoxenia? (hospitality), and ?kali orexi? (good appetite) with a variety of
Cypriot mezzedakia, main entrees and desserts. The purpose of our Event was to commemorate the 40 years
since the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus and to provide hope & support to troubled families and their children in Cyprus through a non-profit organization called the Cyprus Children╒s Fund, Inc. Guest speakers;
Vasilios Philippou, Consulate General of the Republic of Cyprus and Savas Tsivicos, President and National
Chairman of the Cyprus Children╒s Fund joined our Event and shared their insights about Cyprus and we
