Thank you from Chris Anastas

Dear Festival Kitchen Prep Team Leaders, Kitchen Prep and Lunch Volunteers:

There are no words to express my deepest appreciation to the following volunteers who have given their time and continued effort in making our Annual Labor Day Festival huge successes!

Festival Kitchen Prep Team Leaders – Many thanks to the Festival Kitchen Prep Team Leaders who keep coming back to volunteer their services in overseeing the items made for our Annual Labor Day Festival: Christina Anastas, Mary Angelides, Sarah Angelides, Lexie Dendrinelis, Georgia and

Michael Ferretti, Christina Ginos, Teddy Hart, Carol Kamburis, Maria and Michael Kamburis, Helen Koskolos, Sue Lampros, Dean Millonas, Jenny and Mike Pappas, Pete Papadopoulos, Haroula & John Souris, Pete and Teresa Stavrides, Kim Tarlas, Becky Tharenos, Dianne and George Zotos.   

Kitchen Prep Volunteers – A very special thank you to the ladies and gentlemen who show up week after week volunteering their services to ensure “thousands” of items are made for our Festival.

Without “you” this would not be possible.

This year we were so lucky to have many young adults and children of all ages help with our kitchen prep. We thank the parents and grandparents for bringing them to learn and participate in volunteering their services to our St. Nicholas Community. We look forward to seeing them next year!

Lunch Volunteers – In order for us to get through the day we thank our lunch volunteers who provide a delicious lunch for our volunteers: Christina Anastas, Ann Brown, Fr. Michael and Caroline Arbanas, Georgia and Michael Ferretti, Festival Steering Committee, Bess Fitzmaurice, Christina Ginos, Teddy Hart, Carol, Kamburis, Sue Lampros, Stephanie Demos McPherron, Gina Nakis, Voula Natsis, Debbie and Joe Palazzola, Parish Council, St. Nicholas Philoptochos, Anna Siromas, Katherine Rutter, Andrea Tarlas and Kim Tarlas.

As we move forward into “The Next 100” we hope this will encourage the youth and family members within and outside of our St. Nicholas Community in volunteering their services. If you are interested in volunteering, please feel free to contact me at or 314.647.4636

Thanks again for your continued support,

Chris Anastas
