Volunteers from the organisation served the people who came to enjoy the festivities. The volunteers helped the board of directors to cut up and serve the vasilopita to participants.

Ms Varveris said the next event to be arranged by the Brotherhood of Lefcada will be an excursion to the Greek Orthodox monastery of Panagia Kamariani at Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula  on January 26.
