Marilyn Kromydas Yeatts, one of the members of the first St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Junior Parish Council and a member of the first Aegeans Dancers – the founders of FDF – has been actively involved since 1975, or earlier. Marilyn wrote this meticulous and engaging story of the founding of FDF for publication in the 1996 Oli Mazi. The article contains invaluable documentation of the history of the folk dance festival from one who was on the scene, and remains active in FDF today. Thank you, Marilyn.
