Hello Everyone my name is Athanasios.
This is the first planning of such an event so please be patient with me through the growing pains. 
First of all it is fantastic that a Greek Meetup group in GTA exists. Great idea and thank you very much Niko. Also thank you very much to all members who make this vital and possible!
Lately I noticed a significant joining activity in the group and I thought this is an ideal time and great reason to suggest a pre-christmas meetup. My vision for this meet-up in December is to get to know each other, speak some Greek and mainly to have fun in a cosy, familiar and friendly atmosphere. Maybe with time the hopefully many future to follow Greek meet-up events, will become a platform to discuss emerging issues and also a support group for Greek speakers new and old in Toronto that aim to connect with the Greek-speaking world in, and, the Greater Toronto Area community.
I suggest this time as meeting place the Cafe Demetre in Greektown (400 Danforth Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M4K 1P3) and on December the 8th at 14:00. I look forward to welcoming you all to this encounter and join me for a coffee, maybe some dessert, and plenty of conversation in Greek (and English). 
Although the event officially starts at 14:00 PM, you may arrive at any time during the afternoon. Please RVSP, because this will help with the planning and when you sign up it encourages others to join us too! I am sure you will identify us, but if you cannot find us please ask for the “Greek Meetup”.
We look forward to seeing everyone and please spread the word about the group in your circle of friends and acquaintances.

    Thank you All for coming! It was really really great to meet Everyone in person and I enjoyed our inspiring conversations! Thank you Everyone for any exchanged ideas and tips regarding Canadian job and live challenges, as well as the analyses on Canadian work/cultural differences.

    Today 9 people; but I hope the next Greek meet-up will be even bigger. Feel free to post any type of feedback that can help make the next meetings even better. Also feel free to initiate/instigate/suggest any new events.

    I will email in the next days our exchanged contact details.

    Have a great week και μέχρι την επόμενη φορά, ελπίζω σύντομα!

    I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Φιλικούς Χαιρετισμούς,

    Hello everyone,

    ΧΡΟΝΙΑ ΠΟΛΛΑ σε όλους τους Νίκους και Νικολέτες!

    Tomorrow is our meetup. I will be there at 2 PM for the early birds, however feel free to drop in anytime later, as we will likely be there for a few hours at least. The Cafe-shop is just on Danforth beside the MEGAS Restaurant. The nearest TTC subway station is Chester. Parking could turn out difficult; I believe right across from the TTC station you can find some for a fee.

    I look forward to meeting/seeing everyone! Καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

    Ouch! I never had wisdom teeth preventive removed.
    Niko, should you feel after the teeth extraction painless and considerable robust just drop in. I sincerely hope you'll get after the treatment better soon!

    Hmmm..., I suggest since we got the process started we keep the ball rolling. We broke already the record, 5(+2) people responded positive.

    Thank you folks!

    Thank you Thanasi for putting this together. I'll be removing a couple of wisdom teeth that Friday, so I won't be able to join you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
