This Saturday’s ‘Meet and Greek’ events are drawing Grenfell people back for the weekend, and attracting new visitors.
Angela Mellick and her partner will be returning from Sydney after a long absence. Many will remember Victor Mellick and his men’s wear shop, situated close to the former ABC café. Angela is keen to meet up again with her childhood friends, and family friend, Dot Lamkin.
Professor Peter Parashos and his wife Mary will be coming from Melbourne. Peter is keen to look over his old shop, now the ‘Empire Café’ – and to join up with the friends of his youth. Photos were taken of him as a child in the Main Street with a little Maria Ferris – and they will meet up again this weekend.
George Raftopoulos will be in town with an ABC team filming him while he does some painting – and many of the wonderful Grenfell Greek families who came last year will return. One new visitor will be George Hetrel, a school friend of Clive Johnson from Yanco days, who will be driving with his wife from Melbourne.
