  4. 4. letter from our mayor James M. Baker Mayor June 2009 Dear Friends of the Greek Festival: On behalf of the citizens of Wilmington, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2008 Greek Festival at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. What better way to kick off the summer season in our beautiful and historic City than with the exciting Greek Festival? As you stand in the shadows of one of Wilmington’s most magnificent landmark churches, it is easy to see why this beloved event has enjoyed such remarkable success for so many years. Where else can you find such a tempting array of good food, lively music and dancing, and warm fellowship? From the mouthwatering pastries and sweets to the beautiful handicrafts and artifacts, the Greek Festival enables us all to share a little of that legendary Greek pride. Organizing an event as well attended as the Greek Festival is no easy task. I commend the hard work of the friends, volunteers, and sponsors who make this festival so memorable. Their tireless efforts and generosity are essential to the continued success of this event. Once again, I welcome you to the Greek Festival and thank you for your support and celebration of the events that make our City such a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. Very truly yours, James M. Baker Mayor | Wilmington Greek Festival 009
  5. 5. Dear Friends, letter from our president Kalos Orisate! On behalf of the parishioners of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2009 Wilmington Greek Festival. The Greek Festival remains a wonderful opportunity for the members of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Community to share with its neighbors our Greek Orthodox faith, our cherished cultural traditions, food, music and dance. Each year, our Greek Festival is made possible by the tireless efforts of the many members of our Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Community. I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has volunteered their time and labor to help make this festival successful. During your time with us at our Greek Festival, close your eyes and experience the sights, sounds and wonderful aromas of food, and the relaxation of being in a Greek Village. We hope we succeed in extending our Greek “philoxenia”- hospitality - and allow you to come enjoy a taste of Greece. Thank you for joining us this year.

The early Greek pioneers in Wilmington were not afraid of work. They accepted just about every type of work. But, once they established themselves, they set about form- ing associations and a “Greek” school for their children, and their church, what we now call Holy Trinity. Today, as it has been since 1934, The Ecclesia – the Church – is the center of the Greek Community in Wilmington. Unlike other ethnic groups in Wilmington, there is no “town”. While many Greeks lived near their church (after all, as recently as 1950, half the people who lived in Delaware, lived in Wilmington!), they lived downtown, the East side, the Ninth Ward, and West Center City. The Church, Community Center, Greek Festival, Odyssey Charter School, and all the contributions the Greek Community has made to the community-at-large, are a testament to how far we have come from our humble beginnings in the late 19th Century. But what a story it is… In 1890, the first known Greek immigrants arrived in Wilmington, the Tsagares brothers, Panagiotes and James. Within a few years, a name still known in A Brief History Wilmington, arrived and started the first “Big” Greek business in the area. John of the Greek Govatos founded Govatos Candies and the Greeks of Wilmington had their first Community “connected” leader. in Wilmington, In 1913, Charles Tarabicos arrived and opened a restaurant. The first indication of Delaware “Community” came about in 1920 as the Greek Language School was established on the second floor of his Presto Restaurant at The Greek Community in 8th Market Streets. A study of early 20th Century businesses found many confections Wilmington came together and restaurateurs up and down Market like most other ethnic groups Street, King Street, and beyond. around the country. In their desire to organize, the Greeks of What brought them to Wilmington formed associations.
