Before my friend Peter Arvanitis moved to Seattle, and then to Portland, he lived in the Bay Area and in his company I got to sample the local Greek-American community. Many years ago, we went to an annual festival next to the previous Greek church that stood on Valencia Street that later burned down. If you want to see some of the children who danced that day click on the title above, SAN FRANCISCO GREEK FESTIVAL MANY YEARS AGO. The children were undoubtedly prepared for the dance by Peter's friend (and mine, I hope) Stathi (Stathis Stratis) who went on to Rhodes in Greece.
