Yes, Greek Parade Doesn’t Have to Always Be in March – But June?

April 1, 2022

To the Editor:

To be sure, I am not sharing any original wisdom here. People all over the Community are talking about this – but sometimes things need to be set in black and white. During the pandemic we have addressed and adjusted to many things – individually and collectively. First, let me applaud the Community’s institutions and organizations for doing their very best for all of us, and the Hellenic and Orthodox values we cherish. Now, however, I must say that the mess at the Federation must be cleared up with as much speed – and dignity (that is the part I worry about) as possible. OK, the parade had to be delayed…but for almost three months? Perhaps I just don’t have enough facts, and I look forward to being better informed, but, seriously, those people could not set their cases and their egos aside for a while so we could have the parade just after Pascha? By the way I believe that except for years when March 25 falls on a Sunday, the parade should be the week after Greek Easter – a proposal I believe I read in TNH. The warmer, more reliable weather of May will guarantee that more children will participate and more adults will attend.
