St. Nicholas Chapel Walking Trails Project
One of the projects of the foundation is the development of walking trails and rest areas for the small St. Nicholas chapel on the outskirts of Vatoussa. George Sosonides, a leading architect based in Kalloni, has drawn up architectural plans for the trails with retaining walls, park benches, fountains, and directional signs. Plans call for the project to be phased in over several years, beginning in 2001.
