The event is set for June 30, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., on the church grounds at 8306 NC Hwy 751, about a half-mile south of I-40 Exit 274 near Southpoint Mall. Admission is free. “A Taste of Greece” will serve popular gyros and pastries, with a few vendors on hand and a DJ playing Greek music – dance along if you like!
