WHAT IS PONTOS?
Pontos is the area in which we are originated. It was once a region of Greece. It is currently modern day Turkey. We (The Kiriakidis family) are Pontian Greeks; and proud of it. The Pontians have their own dialect, music and history. A large amount of Pontians migrated to Norwalk CT about 30 years ago. The city of Norwalk is the home to many Greeks, most of them being Pontian.
WHAT IS THE PONTIAN SOCIETY?
A question I have answered numerous of times. The Society was a social club owned by the Greek members of Norwalk. It was a place for Greeks to gather and dine while listening to Pontian music. Today its a group of members who teach the young Pontian generation all about their culture, history and dance. On Monday nights when the restaurant is closed, you can drive by and see a group of about 60 children dancing to the Pontian music. Its a place of history. Where they continue making history while keeping the Pontian culture alive.
