Burnt Thursday

What a great day for a Community BBQ. Burnt Thursday had souvlaki grilling over hot coals from one end of the island to the other with the aroma spreading around the villages to get everyone out and about to enjoy the day. In Stavros, the Primary school community organized a big grill-up at the Community center which turned out to be a great success in raising funds for the school. The dedicated mums, some of which took front line in the grill-up (below left - Eleni, Dina, Maria and Eugenia), by serving and tidying up as needed, put on their smiles and their aprons to help make the afternoon a great success. A really nice way to spend the afternoon. The weather was great too!! and it's still February.
