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.
