Dear Friends, On behalf of the parishioners of the Resurrection Greek Orthodox Church in Castro Valley, it is my personal joy to welcome all of you to our 40 th annual Greek Festival. For forty years, all of our parishioners have viewed the Greek Festival as an opportunity to immerse our local community into the richness of Greek culture, cuisine and, most importantly, our Orthodox Faith. Take the opportunity to walk through our entire complex: the Church, Hall (where we have ala carte food, pastries, and shopping), and Tent where our live band will offer you excellent entertainment and you can even try some Greek dancing! The word "Orthodox" means "right faith" and the expression of that faith. Today, there are approximately million Greek Orthodox Christians in the world. Although the Church is called "Greek" Orthodox, the parishioners are not all of Greek descent, as not all parishioners of the Roman Catholic Church are Roman. Our Church always welcomes those from other religious backgrounds to experience our Divine Liturgy and participate in communal worship. Thank you again for participating in our Greek Festival. Enjoy the experience and may God bless you and yours. Respectfully, Father Michael Prevas PARISH PRIEST

Greece drips from our Federal architecture, our art and music, our political and religious and culinary heritage. So you come to the Greek Festival, in a way, to remember who you are. It was already in your soul. Now youre just letting it show a little. Besides, theres the baklava. And gyros. And pastitsio, and a Taverna, and the galaktobureko in the kafenion. And theres dancing! Youre here for the food. And the dancing. And because its cheaper than flying to Greece. Thank you for supporting our festival. Were glad youve come to join us and be a part of us. Youre welcome here. Read on and learn a little bit more about our congregations culture. Join in and feel it for yourself. Not all of us are Greek. Neither are all of you. But for a few days every October, who can tell? A gyro can balance a ship, but our gyros will drive you wild (say yhee-row if its singular). Some cultural linguists suggest that the Italian hero sandwich may have borrowed its name from here. Heres another case where I saved a group of rectangles, text boxes, and pictures to a picture and then placed the picture in the correct position on the slide.

How to read Greek in less than ten minutes The Greek Alphabet was the first alphabet to give a separate symbol to each vowel and consonant. Even though the pronunciation has relaxed slightly since ancient times, its 24 letters are still even easier to learn than our 26 letters in English. If you have taken high school math or physics, or ever went to a college with fraternities and sororities, you already know all the Greek letters without realizing it. Greek letters that look and sound almost exactly like English: Α Ε Ζ Ι Κ Μ Ν Ο Τ Greek letters that look like English, but are pronounced differently: Β (like V) Η (like the i in pita) Ρ (like r) Υ (a bit like the ee in cheese, sometimes like an f/v if it follows ε ) Χ (like a throaty English K or H. Try clearing your throat.) Greek letters that look unusual to English readers, but have familiar sounds: Γ (G, sometimes Y) Δ (th as in this) Θ (th as in thin) Λ (L) Ξ (X like in exit, not like in xylophone) Π (P) Σ (S) Φ (F) Ψ (ps, like in hopscotch) Ω (O) CHRIS & GEORGES TEST ONLY Test Only Directed Vechicle Gross Polluter Certifications DMV Registration Renewal Ownership Transfer Pass or Free Retest George Georgiou, Owner 2520 West St, Oakland, CA Mon – Fri 8:00am – 6:00pm Sat 8:00am – 3:00pm $35.95 with coupon with coupon 1996 pass cars & light trucks only for certificate Electronic Transmission Add for Evap.

Resurrection ChurchA Forty Year Odyssey For some reason, God likes the number 40. Noahs Ark was adrift for 40 days (which we mimic in the observance of Lent until we, too, are rescued), Gods people spent 40 years before they were ready for the place God was bringing them to. Elijahs fast and Jesus fast were both 40 days. We turn 40 this year. Here are some of the things weve done: 1971 – First Liturgy. Fr. George Stephanides arrives –Center Street property purchased – Father Chris Maniudakis arrives – Church consecrated by Bishop Anthony. Fr. Michael Makredes arrives – Fr. Tom Avramis arrives Parish hosts Folk Dance Festival – Construction of Community Center – Parish hosts Oratorical Festival – Fr. James Retelas arrives – Rise N Shine pre- school opens. Diamond Ct – Paid Fellowship Hall mortgage – Finished office remodel and move.

2115 Kelly Street Hayward, CA Kelly Street Hayward, CA Kelly Street Hayward, CA Kelly Street Hayward, CA By Kathy Angel, Dance Director Greek dancing originated in pre-Christian times as the chorus in the ancient Greek plays. The chorus would sing and dance to provide a musical interlude between segments of the play. The only known dance to exist from ancient times is the Tsakonikos. It depicts Greek dance: A preservation of ancient culture interplay resulted in a rich legacy of regionalized dances and types of dress which vary greatly in style. The dances of the mainland tend to be heavier, whereas the dances of the islands are more lilting to represent the waves of the sea. The dances from the Ionian islands on the western coast the story of Theseus leaving the labyrinth to escape from the minotaur. The land that eventually became Greece began as a collection of independent city-states. Even during the time of Alexander the Great or the Byzantine Empire, the majority of the population seldom traveled outside of their local villages, and if they did it would be to the nearest large city or town to get things they could not produce themselves or that were not available in their village. This of Greece exhibit a degree of Italian influence, and the clothing is more European or Renaissance in style. The eastern Dodecanese islands, on the other hand, reveal oriental and Turkish influence and use more silk and brocades in the clothing. The folk dances of Greece often tell a story, depict a historical event, or are tied to a particular season or observance. The dances are usually done in an open circle with the leader at the right, but there are also some Courtesy of Columbus, Ohio, Greek Festival Since 1958

The most common and popular dances of Greece are the Pan- Hellenic dances (as opposed to the regional ones). Among these dances are: Syrto - considered to be the national dance of Greece when done in the Kalamatiano style from the village of Kalamata in the Peloponnese. It features a variable rhythm. Hasapiko or Hasaposerviko - has an even beat rhythm in varying tempos depending on the song. The slower tempo has a walking pattern whereas the fast tempo has a bouncier step. Tsamiko - tends to be more popular with male dancers as the men will do fancy kicks, leaps, and flips when they lead the dance. Other dances include the Vari Hasapiko, often called Zorbas dance, and the Karsilama, a dance for couples. Each dance features its own unique pattern. To fully immerse yourself in the Greek culture and learn each of the dances, come to the dance lessons. I will teach you to dance like a Greek.

Greek Cuisine 101: Introduction to YUM! By Elaine Schmitz, Author My family arrived in the U.S. around 1910, from three areas of Greece. They settled in Americas heartland, making their livings selling meals in restaurants and pastries in a snack shack. We lived in a Greek church-centered community while we melted into this countrys pot of so many different cultures. Many Greek traditions disappeared during the last century, but Greek food still graces my familys tables every day. What is it about Greek cuisine that maintains its status as a perennial favorite whether you are a transplanted Greek or German or Italian or Mexican or Heinz-57 variety? I say fresh, healthy ingredients and mysterious and tasty herbs and spices blended with the right touch of good home cooking. Whether you try a simple-to-make Greek salad or the elaborate Pastitsio baked casserole, you are in for a tangy, delicious dish. And, of course, the pastries are the food of the gods. The origins of Greek food are ancient. Greeks combine both common and rare ingredients to create their flavor sensations. Honey was used as the original sweetener and still is the go-to choice. It adds a unique toothsome taste and a pleasant moist texture to each bite. Egg/lemon sauces not only increase the nutritional content of such varied dishes as avgolemono soup, stuffed grape leaf dolmas, or meatballs, they also add a creamy, tasty flavor to each dish. Lemon paired with oregano lends a unique piquancy to meats, poultry, and fresh vegetables. Other ingredients are less well-known. Masticha has a romantic past. A tree sap only found on the southern end of the Aegean island of Chios, it was the favorite gum of the Sultans harem during the Ottoman Empire. It lends an indescribable yet delicate difference to cookies and holiday breads. Mahlepi, also esteemed in the Middle East, is an aromatic extract of the St. Lucie Cherry. Cinnamon, known in many cuisines, shows up in meat dishes and casseroles, adding a wonderful richness. Our festival offers you many venues to try our fabled and fabulous cuisine. We serve dinners and pastries in the main hall, and you can buy many mezedessmaller portions of savory foods, like the meaty gyros and souvlakia and the phyllo-wrapped spanakopita and tiropitesin the outdoor booths. If you want to take the recipes home with you and cook your own Greek festival throughout the year, be sure to stop by our cooking demonstrations as well. Elaine Schmitz is the author of Recipes and Recollections of my Greek American Family. She and her book can be found at the festival.
