27th July 2019

At our July meeting we welcome back George Symons with more stories about his Greek background,this time from the other side of the family in Melbourne.

“My grandfather ran the Mangos Cafe in Chapel Street, Windsor for 42 years. It became famous,” George said. The cafe’s classic fare reputedly included eggs, oysters, fish, chops,sausages, lamb’s fry, and ‘delicacies’ such as baked beans on toast!

You’ll remember that George last spoke to the Society in April 2018. His witty and accomplished raconteurship means that his ability to convey the experience of newcomers to Australia is thoroughly entertaining.

2-4 pm | Merthyr Road Uniting Church Centre.
