Anastasia Vradelis   source Dayton Stories Project March 18, 1996
I was a Moschos for sixteen years and from then on Iíve been a Vradelis.  My parents came to this country in 1913 right after the Dayton Flood.  They brought three children with them and I was the first one that was born here and a brother after me.  Theyíre all gone except this younger brother and myself.  Then, I grew up in the Arcade .  Iím sure you all remember the Arcade .  I took my first walking steps in the Arcade and everybody was so delighted that I had walked.  You probably remember Andrewís Bakery in there.  They made me a great big cake because I took my first steps there.  Like I say, I didnít go to school very long.  I went to Central and then I went off of North Main Street .  I forget the name of it.  Then I went one year at the Steele High School and after that I got married and Iíve lived happily ever since.  Iíve been widowed now for thirty-nine years.  More than that actually since 1968.  Colonel White was the name of the school. 

Would you tell about your fatherís education and how he taught Greek School in Central School .
 No.  He taught it at the Y.  He was an elementary school teacher in Greece and then when he came here we hard times.  He went into the candy business.  Most of you remember the candy that we made and then he taught at the Y.  He taught Greek classes to elderly people and thatís about it.
