The Ahepan Winter 2019 - 21

PERICLEAN

Sons, Maids Unified in
Promoting Programs
Sons Supreme President Paul Pavlakos and
Maids Grand President Theodora Ronstadt
We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and are reinvigorated to start the new year with renewed enthusiasm and a
strategy for future growth and success. This year, the Sons and
Maids have strived for unity and cooperation, reflected by our
desire to address you in this issue jointly in one message. So
far, we have made great strides in fundraising for our National
Project, the JED Foundation, which promotes mental health
awareness and provides mental health resources. We have also
experienced significant growth in membership because of the
value we have provided to our members, both growing existing chapters as well as starting new chapters in Dayton, Ohio,
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; and the
Florida cities of Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando,
and Tallahassee. Each Order has initiated
unique programs as well, such as:
Sons of Pericles: Greek Genocide recognition achieved in New Jersey, Rising Sons
Service Weekend at the Diakonia Center
in Salem, S.C., and development of a professional mentorship database.
Maids of Athena: We are currently in
our fourth year of our annual leadership
program, Maid to Lead. This year we
have 12 young women participating in
four committees. A member from each
committee will be selected to join us at
our annual Maid to Lead conference in
Washington, D.C. We are excited to see what these great leaders
will bring to the table in 2020!
Finally, we value our ability to work together as one AHEPA
family. In this respect, we ask of each of you to contact the
Supreme and Grand Lodges for all matters relating to the Sons
and Maids, especially the intention to start a new chapter or hold
a mass initiation. Our potential for growth will go only as far as
our effort to cooperate. Please feel free to reach out to either
of us with any questions on the youth Orders. We also strongly
urge you to stay updated by visiting sonsofpericles.org and maidsofathena.org. We look forward to a great year ahead and look
forward to progressing the proud history of the AHEPA family.

N.J. Governor Murphy Issues
Proclamation Recognizing
Greek Genocide
On a momentous occasion for
the Sons of Pericles and greater
Hellenic community, Governor
Phil Murphy of New Jersey
issued a proclamation recognizing the Greek Genocide of
1914-1923 during an Oxi Day
Celebration in District 5. The
proclamation "commemorate[s]
the Greek Genocide of 19141923" and remembers all "1.2 million men, women, and children of Greek descent [who] were victims of genocide or were
deported or displaced from their homes." Preceding the reading of the proclamation, Supreme President Paul Pavlakos presented on the importance of learning about the Greek Genocide
and advocating for its recognition across the country and around
the world. Visit sonsofpericles.org/recognition to get involved in
advocating in your community.

Greeks in Seattle Approaches
The Sons and Maids will kick off their inaugural joint event, Greeks
in Seattle on Martin Luther King Weekend 2020. A weekend in
the Emerald City will bring members from across North America
together for the SOP Western Regional Basketball tournament,
an MOA leadership conference, and social events that promise to
leave our youth excited to get involved and remain active.
