Supreme President Meets Cypriot President at EOKA
Commemoration Event
Supreme President John W. Galanis met briefly with President of the Republic of
Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades at a gala to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the EOKA
(National Organization of Cypriot Struggle) uprising, which would eventually lead to
Cypriot independence from Great Britain in 1960.
President Anastasiades served as the keynote speaker for the gala, which was
held Sept. 20, 2015, in Chicago.
"We were proud to have a strong showing of AHEPA family members from
the Midwest in support of this important celebration," Galanis said. "I appreciated the opportunity to convey AHEPA's warm regards and greetings to President
Anastasiades, who also took time to greet our AHEPA family members in attendance. I also congratulate the organizers of the gala, which was a great success."
A proclamation to mark EOKA's anniversary from the Illinois Secretary of
State was read. The Cypriot American Society of Greater Chicago organized the
Supreme President Galanis with President
event. Several past supreme and current district and chapter officers accompanied Anastasiades and PSEKA President and Ahepan
