Dear Castellorizian Ladies Auxiliary,President and Committee
As usual I am writing to thank the President and Committee on their tireless work and success in their work. The Castellorizian Club (Leski) is doing such wonderful work and we are very proud of their achievements. I am sure we are all very proud to be Castellorizians. I am very sad that my brother Mr Leo Leondis did not live long enough to see the opening of this wonderful club, which was his life time dream.
The reason for my letter is that I cannot help thinking what a wonderful idea it would be for a Castellorizian Nursing Home to be built for our elderly. I realise this would be a very difficult task and beyond anyone’s expectations, with time and effort and support from the community maybe one day we Castellorizians will be able to achieve yet another dream. Men and women , young and old, if we can start from a small amount of money with donations ,functions, such as dances and anti-stefani etc, maybe we can build a nursing home. I do hope you will acknowledge my idea and in time we will benefit. I wish to start the collection with the FIRST donation of $500 towards the project…..
