Lemnos Gallipoli at the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival!

Once again our Committee has been at the famous Lonsdale Street Greek Festival in downtown Melbourne.
Again we were invited by the Pontiaki Estia and Merimna community organisations to share their stall at the Festival.
We have been working together for a number of years now - supporting our Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial work and the push to erect a statue to George Devine Treloar in Ballarat.
We again distributed our promotional material - getting the story of Lemnos' role in Gallipoli out to the wider community - as well as our forthcoming major publication - Lemnos and Gallipoli.
Great also to hear and see the great Greek folkloric music and dance on display - especially as we are hosted by the magnificent Pontiaki Estia and its dancers - as well as being next door to the Cretan Brotherhood and its musicians and dancers! Opa!
Great also to see our friends Konstantinos Kalymnios at the Pan Epirotic stall, Peter Andrinopoulos and Katy Karabatsos at the Society of Kalamata stall, MC Lee Andrikopoulos, the Greek Anzacs' Paul Sougleris and Peter Ford - honorary Cretan and roving photographer!
Thanks to all who came and helped out at the stall today - Deb Stewart, Vice-President Christina Despoteris, John Salpigitidis and Ange Kenos. We couldn't do it without you!
And thanks to all those who visited to say hello and lend support - like Angelo Yannacaros.
Thanks to the Pontiaki Estia and Merimna for their on-going support for our work.
See some of the photos I took above and below.
