The Greek Community of Melbourne officially handed keys to its brand-new Club rooms at the Greek Centre to the first of what is hoped will be many members, the Argos Orestikon Association, in a special event at the Greek Center last Wednesday.
The Club on Level 12 of the Lonsdale Street Greek Centre, is a modern and private facility that is now the "new home" for the Argos Orestikon members where they regularly will meet.
In addition to the well-appointed lounge, Argos Orestikon has access to all of the facilities of the Greek Centre including the function space, gallery and secretarial services of the Greek Community of Melbourne.
Argos Orestikon donated a million dollars to the Greek Community for its cultural centre with a view of seeing its money used to fund language and cultural programs that the Greek Community has become synonymous with.
“We feel very much at home and well looked after” said Argos Orestikon Hon Secretary Jim Megas as he and his committee called on other organisations to join them at The Club by considering a similar donation to the Greek Community of Melbourne.
