presented at this event
the life and the legacy
of one more person who
lived in our village and helped
the development, the peace
and the progress of this place.
Mr Leonidas Diamadopoulos was a gentle, clever, hard- working man who had a quiet life and inspired others.
He was married with Adamadia Diamadopoulos and they had a son.
He was an electrician but he worked as a farmer. He was the first man who grew kiwifruits in our village, not taking into account all the negative comments when he replaced the lemon trees with kiwis.
He participated in Longo's Theatre and he was a prompt in the theatrical performances of our society in plays like 'The red Shirt' and many others.
Leonidas Diamantopoulos was active and he had innovative ideas. He was also the president of our cultural society 'Lord Byron' for many years.
