GOYA Day at Holiday Hill 2013
Our annual kick-off event of the year, GOYA Day at Holiday Hill took place on September 21, 2013 in Prospect, CT. Thanks to a generous allocation from the District Finance Committee, we were able to offer a reduced price for participation and were happy to say that over 300 GOYAns shared in a day of faith, fellowship, sport, food and fun. We also had over 40 adults in attendance for our First Annual GOYA Advisor Seminar Retreat. Fr. Peter Orfanakos from St. Barbara's Greek Orthodox Church in Orange, CT and Steven Christoforou, Parish Ministry and Youth Protection Coordinator for the National Youth Office for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, spoke to the advisors on how to effectively run and optimize local GOYA programs.
