AHEPA FAMILY CHAPTER NEWS

District 4
Gust C. Kraras Chapter No. 61, Reading, Pa.
The chapter held its annual Scholarship Banquet, May 21, 2018, where it presented scholarship awards to (pictured l-r): Karissa Dialectos, Vasilis Phyrillas, Patrick Phyrillas and
Chris Sterious. More than 60 AHEPA and family members attended the event.

District 6
Delphi Chapter 25, Manhattan, N.Y.
The Eastern Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance (EMBCA) sponsored the
first ever Seraphim Canoutas Lecture entitled, "'We are all Greeks:' March 25,
1821- Hellenes and Philhellenes in the War of Independence", at the 3 West Club
in Midtown Manhattan. The lectures offered insights into the War, highlighting the
remarkable efforts of Makriyiannis and the other heroes of 1821, while also noting
the terrible toll of the War on the common people. Slides also brought history to life. Seraphim G. Canoutas (1874- 1944) was an
attorney, educated at the University of Athens and in the U.S., a diplomat, historian, and prolific author. He was known as the
"First Historian of the Hellenes in the Western Hemisphere." Canoutas was also a proud Ahepan, joining Chapter 25 soon after its
founding in 1922 and becoming Chapter 25 President. The event's title comes from Percy Bysshe Shelley's famous poem "Hellas"
written in 1822 - "We are all Greeks. Our laws, our literature, our religion, our arts have their root in Greece." Consul General of
Greece in New York Konstantinos Koutras and New York State Department of Transportation Assistant Commissioner for Regions
10 and 11 George Paralemos, who represented Governor Andrew Cuomo, addressed the audience.

AHEPA Chapter 41, Brooklyn, N.Y.
The chapter announced more than $18,000 was raised from its 2017 Golf Outing to benefit
the four Greek Orthodox churches that serve Brooklyn: Saints Constantine and Helen, Three
Hierarchs, Kimisis Theotokou, and Holy Cross. The donations were presented simultaneously on April 1, 2018.

SOP Phocion Chapter 44, Albany, N.Y.
The chapter honored Ahepan Brother Chris Pappis, a fourth-generation member of the Albany AHEPA family at a testimonial held at
St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church hall, April 29, 2018. Annually, the chapter honors a selfless and caring community member who
is appreciated and admired by their peers, and Brother Chris exemplifies those qualities. Supreme Secretary Jimmy Kokotas, District
6 Governor Ted Stamas, and District 6 Director
of Membership James Zafiros provided moving
tributes to the honoree. Chapter 44 President
Michael Ziamandanis served as Master of
Ceremonies. Among the accolades, Brother
Pappis was described as a model 21st century
Hellene, who proudly captures the American
Spirit. He received a standing ovation.
