The Cultural Club “ARINI” opens to you its
web portal and lets you know its history. If you are from Arini and you live
many years away from your homeland, as you walk through the electronic paths,
you will stand again in your old neighborhood and will remember your childhood.
If you are just a web visitor, you will know
better this small but very beautiful place of earth. Your touring may lead you
to old stone houses, to beautiful fountains with fresh water, to green gardens,
as well as to burned forests that will hurt you, as they hurt as too a few
years ago and we are still trying to heal our wounds.
Before getting sad, you can read the newspaper
or our Club, “Ta Arinaika” (The news of Arini). Through its pages, you will
learn the news of the village, and if you do so every month, it will be like
living with us and as if you have never left us.
We let you draw your own conclusions and create
your own impressions. The only thing we will do, is just writing a few words
about how we started and how we have reached at this point….
