Citizens' Associations (3)


Cultural Association "Alexander the Great"

  The Cultural Association of Agios Georgios "Alexander the Great" is taking place the last three years. It was founded in 1982 but two years later it stopped operating because there was lack of interest of the young people. The comeback to the action was powerful, with a creation of dancing courses and a theatrical team which has presented allready two plays.
  The Association has 62 registered members. The dance master is Dimitrios Mitskas. There is a variety of dancing from Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus and the Black Sea. The costumes of the association represend the Central Macedonia and Thrace. Every year at the village festival the members of the association organise a two-day cultural celebration on 25-26 October, the day of the Church celebration. There are many participations of "Alexander the Great" for other festivals all around Pella prefecture.

Cultural Association of Drosero "Philippos"

  The internal immigration of the recent years, affected the culture of the village. The Cultural Association of Drosero "Philippos" was out of action for about six years and that dead period of time, was obvious mostly to the young people. So, in 1998 it was decided to refound "Philippos" with the aim to fill the cultural emptiness, offering alternative activities and entertaining ways to residents.
  Today, "Philippos" has a choir of adults and two sections of dancing in which dance master Constantinos Trebolitis teaches dances from Macedonia, Thrace and Vlach dances. In the choir participate 15 members and three players of musical instruments. In the dancing sections take part 50 members of all ages. The association has undertaken the organising of the celebration of the village on 21st of May, the day that celebrates the Church of Drosero Agios Constantinos. Even dancing festivals are organised and monthly meetings, where sweets and coffee is offered to the guests. The projection of the action of "Philippos" has been helped by the letters of love of its members and the offering of presents to the soldiers of the guardhouses at the borders and to the boarders of elderly houses at Christmas and Easter.
