The Ahepan Summer 2021 - 4
A MESSAGE FROM SUPREME PRESIDENT GEORGE G. HORIATES, ESQ.
Greece - All Aboard!
By the time you receive this edition of The Ahepan, we will be ushering in the summer of 2021.
Many of our valued members and their families have made plans for the Greek Bicentennial AHEPA
Supreme Convention as many of us have been vaccinated and are ready to face the challenges of a
new world and our new society. Still there are folks who have not finalized plans for the summer.
This message is a final opportunity to convince them to join us.
This summer, I want to see the Parthenon. I want to hear the sound of the sea. I want to see my ancestral
village. Also, we experience the philotimo of time spent in the ancestral villages of brothers and
sisters not by blood, but by choice. At long last, this summer the AHEPA family celebrates together.
George G. Horiates, Esq.
Defenders of Hellenism
In many ways, we are all sons and daughters of Greece. Comprised of Hellenes and philhellenes, our
AHEPA family has promoted the ancient Greek ideals at the core of Western Civilization for almost
a century. Great Athens is the world's flame of democracy and learned thought which great nations
have dared to emulate for millennia. This summer, we gather in modern day Great Athens. This
summer, we continue to inspire the world.
On hallowed ground that is the ultimate testament to time, we celebrate the Greek Bicentennial. The
lead up and proof are in these pages. AHEPA's Greek Bicentennial, and the American assistance to
Greece, then and now, was celebrated by AHEPA worldwide unlike any other organization.
In these pages, we review our Defense of Hellenism and humanity. From AHEPA Cares to AHEPA
Housing, pandemic-related research, recognition of the Armenian Genocide, boycotting those that
seek to extinguish Hellenism, and recognizing the NBA's Enes Kanter with our AHEPA Human Rights
Award in appreciation of his voice. Our record stands alone.
The previous edition of The Ahepan showcased our past and current contributions to Hellenism in
the civic realm. This edition highlights our humanitarian contributions to Greece and Cyprus. Again,
this exhaustive piece is by Dr. Alexander Kitroeff and is based on the book he is writing for AHEPA's
centennial. It is a coming attraction to AHEPA's once-in-a-lifetime landmark anniversary.
AHEPA concludes its 99th year at this summer's glorious Greek Bicentennial convention. The odometer
starts to turn to our most milestone year. The fall will be a great proving ground as we recognize
the 20-year anniversary of 9/11 with the opening of Saint Nicholas National Shrine as well as the
Patriarchal Banquet. On October 24, AHEPA will host and honor His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch
Bartholomew in Washington, DC. Much more will follow during the AHEPA centennial year.
AHEPA is a great ship whose path we have set forth together. We may not see it land at port, but we
do our best knowing we helped guide it with the greatest of care each and every day along the way.
This summer, the largest and greatest of all the Hellenic diaspora, our AHEPA, docks at our beloved
and historic Greece.
With all of this, membership is crucial. Continue to get all within your reach to join AHEPA.
This summer, all aboard.
