The Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia (GOCSA) celebrated on Monday, 15 April, the 100th birthday of Hristos Pahtsivanos.

Hristos is a resident at the Ridleyton Greek Home for the Aged, which is owned by the GOCSA.

On the day, Hristos was joined by many of his family members and friends to celebrate his birthday. His wife, Georgia, also celebrated her 98th birthday a few days later.

In a post on Facebook by the GOCSA, the couple were seen sitting behind a table with Happy Birthday banners, surrounded by flowers and blowing out candles.

They were also sent many well wishes by members of the local Greek community.

“Happy Centenary Birthday Hristo and Happy 98th Georgia,” the post read.
