Zesti Gonia Seniors of Surrey Friendship Society was formed in 2012.
Initially we were a very small group of people who had a vision and did al the work for the group to happen.
Our membership this year includes approximately 60 people and we would love to have more of our seniors joining the group.
The board of the seniors this year (2016) are:
President : Mr. Constantinos Kontogiannatos
Vice President: : Mr. Peter Moschonas
Treasurer: Mr. Chris Klonarakis
Second Treasurer: Mr. George Margaritis
Secretary: Ka. Maria Lioudakis
In their first year, the Seniors group applied for and received a grant from the province of B.C. They spent that money upgrading the kitchen which is now complete. Also Zesti Gonia made a generous donation to the Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and a donation went to the Child Development Foundation of BC for children with disabilities.
The Seniors run the kafenio (café) 9 months out of the year. Their income from the kafenio, luncheons, and membership were donated to the church each year.
The women of the seniors group have formed a Bible Study group that meets every Tuesday in the community hall at noon and everyone is welcome.
In 2014 the group organized a field trip to Victoria to visit the Ypapanti Greek Orthodox Church Service and the Victorias Greek Food Festival.
The ladies organize a social luncheon, and they also meet in different Greek Restaurants.
