PERICLEAN

SOP Finishes Year on a High Note
Sons of Pericles Supreme President Jimmy Googas
The Sons of Pericles has been working to attend as many District Conventions as
possible over the springtime. Although Supreme Lodge officers have been traveling
the entire year, we are going to reach more than half of the district conventions this
year with the help of the districts. We look forward to meeting AHEPA family members who have been active in the Junior Orders and having
dialogue about ideas.
The Sons of Pericles held its annual Greeks in NYC
basketball tournament the first weekend in June in which
we had the most teams in the past three years. Although
a majority of the teams were from the Northeast, we were
able to bring in a team from Los Angeles to join in the tournament and the festivities. With the great turnout, we not
only expanded our reach to other parts of New York City,
Jimmy Googas
but also strengthened the great relationship that is shared
between all of the areas in the Northeast. Supreme Athletic Director Panagiotis
Tsevdos did a fantastic job coordinating, handling issues, and making the entire
weekend happen.
As an update from the last issue, we have finally realized the full potential of
what San Francisco has to offer as hosts to our National Convention in July. The
Sons, along with the Maids of Athena, have planned fun events for our attendees to
the conference and for the entire AHEPA family, including a "Family Feud" event.

SOP Membership Update
Sons of Pericles membership growth, under the leadership of Supreme Vice
President and Membership Chairman Andreas Christou, and the Supreme Lodge, has
continued to grow the Order in recent months.
Since the last issue of The Ahepan, three more Sons chapter reactivations have
occurred (see Chapter News Section). On March 21, 2015, Supreme Vice President
Christou traveled to Philadelphia to initiate a group at Drexel University into
Atlas Chapter 10, in conjunction with the National Hellenic Students Association
Conference and the Philadelphia Greek Independence Day Parade. On March 22,
AHEPA District 20 Governor Wynn Storton reactivated the Olympian Chapter 82,
Los Angeles. The chapter formed following the members' introduction to the Sons of
Pericles at the Annual Greeks in LA Tournament. Finally, on April 5, the Sam Houston
Chapter 89 was reactivated with a vibrant and eager group of brothers thanks to the
efforts of AHEPA Chapter 29.
Since the 2014 New Orleans Convention, the Supreme Lodge has reactivated 10
chapters and hopes to continue to expand the Junior Order. There is potential for
chapters in Brooklyn, N.Y.; San Jose, Calif., and Lowell, Mass., amongst others, now
leaving only Districts 9, 10, 22, and 26 without active Sons of Pericles chapters. The
Supreme Lodge looks forward to working with AHEPA family chapters and the district lodges to continue strengthening SOP membership and expansion. Our aim is to
have at least one active chapter in each district.
