His Grace Archbishop Athenagoras delivered the dedicatory address, interrupted many times, as heard on the record by the noise made by the congregation. At the end of the record he is heard asking mothers to please take children to adjoining room and keep them quiet. The occasion of this ceremony was the public dedication of the building of a Ladies' Society, Philoptochos (friend of the poor) on May 12, 1940, at Tarpon Springs, Florida. Religious services were conducted by his Grace Archbishop Athenagoras, assisted by Rev. Father Karaphillis of Tarpon Springs' Greek Orthodox Church, St. Nicholas. An impressive demonstration of religious and patriotic fervor marked the services, which were similar to Greek Cross services of Epiphany Day on January 6th. Tarpon Springs was settled by Greek sponge fishers in 1905. The sound quality of this recording is poor.
