20 GOOD REASONS FOR BECOMING A MEMBER

Preamble.     The Greek Australian Lakonian Organisations are of the belief that merely by being a member is an indication that you belong to an ancient family of Lakonians.  The Lakonians are more than 2500 years old and inhabited the same region as modern day Lakonia in Greece. Today Lakonians may be found in every country and on every continent. Courageous, strong of heart, adventurous, free of spirit and a yearning for freedom are the qualities Lakonians are renowned for throughout the ages, even to this day.

Community support.                     We do not compel you or seek donations to support the community other than you attend our community functions when you are able and in a position to do so.  All in-kind support is very much welcome and a certificate of appreciation is thus presented in return and recorded in the records as a benefactor of the community.

Skills and Hobbies.            Should you be willing to give a small part of your time, we would love to hear from you. We are seeking Lakonians no matter how far removed they are from their Lakonian origins or where they live on the planet. If you have skills, knowledge, experience and hobbies in communication, writing, social media, websites, audio, lectures, trades, catering, dancing, folk music, photography, training, teaching, catering, linguistics, grants, busking, history then we want to hear from you.

The Lakonian Register.    What we ask of you is that that you register with us without becoming a member and thus still feel part of a community that has an ancient past.  Although we will not send you material via post or electronic means unless requested to do so, your contribution being on the register is your contribution that Lakonian heritage lives through you.   We need you to assist the community to survive and to assist us in continuing a heritage and culture of which you are a part of. Proof of Lakonian heritage is required if you wish to become a voting member.
