On Saturday, October 4, 2014, the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Community of Toronto celebrated its 40th founding anniversary with a successful and well-attended gala dinner. Almost 500 people came together at the Metropolitan Centre for the festivities, including: His Eminence Metropolitan Sotirios, His Grace Bishop Christoforos and the Hon. Alexandros Ioannidis, the new Consul General of Greece in Toronto.
Traditional Greek entertainment and songs were performed by Greek orchestras including one from Crete. A wonderful commemorative album was also developed, published and distributed to the Community’s founders and benefactors, past and present. The gala dinner was superbly organized by the St. Nicholas Community Council, Philoptochos Association and many volunteers under the leadership of Parish Priest Fr. Fanourios Pappas.
