GREEK GOURMET OWNERS UNITE

Peter Vacaro did a stand-out job as singer and emcee before the terpers performed the traditional Greek dance. Front ‘n center were: Irene Schildroth, who once owned the Missouri Grill with her late husband, Gus Pathenos; Kathy Ellis, who has served as exec secretary of the church for 48 years; Nicky Antoniou, prez of the church’s council, who plied her family with lunch; Nicky Kaperonis, 93, and Bessie Conis, 94, owners of the long-gone Greek Gourmet restaurant and a chairman of this year’s gambol, Adonis Chakides, who said this year’s event took one year to plan.  A million-dollar redo of the church was evident and a sight to behold.  Asked if BJC has offered to buy the church and grounds on the heels of the hospital’s land-grab of most surrounding properties, Chakides replied, “Yes, they did make an offer and told us, that if we ever decide to sell, their board would have interest in it.  But, they’re good neighbors.”  Ed Golterman, who spearheaded a drive to reopen the Kiel Opera House, said his next goal is to expand The Muny’s season to 14 weeks as it did many years ago. WashU School of Med and BJC didn’t miss a beat.  Nearby, Dan Martin of WashU was signing up those interested in enrolling in a study of blood pressure. Black members of the Greek Orthodox church’s growing list of members?  You bet.  According to Nicky Kaperonis, “We have a number of Ethiopians. They’re a
wonderful addition to our membership.”
