"The Greek-American community is the largest home-owning ethnic group in our area," said Scott Russell, Southold Town supervisor. "They keep their properties and hand it down to the next generation." Supervisor Russell, along with prominent politicians Mike Commando, Art Tillman and others attended the July 1st evening event at the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in Mattituck, N.Y.

Music was performed by Kostas Skrepetos Orchestra. Home cooked Greek cuisine; Souvlaki and gyro were grilled before the public's eye. Pasticcio (Greek lasagna), Mousaka and pastries were prepared by the Ladies Philoptohos Society. Persons attended from Astoria, Flushing, New Jersey and the entire North Fork.
