AHEPA Chapter 445 and DOP Chapter 332 Annual New Year’s Scholarship Luncheon

UPPER DARBY, PA – AHEPA Chapter 445 Thermopylae of Upper Darby, PA, and Daughters of Penelope Chapter 332 held their annual New Year’s Scholarship Luncheon on January 2 at the St. Demetrios Church community hall in Upper Darby. Thanks to their generous donors this year, they were able to award eight exemplary Greek-American college students with an AHEPA chapter scholarship for displaying academic excellence and achievement in their programs of study.

For over 50 years, AHEPA Chapter 445 has continued its annual tradition of awarding academic scholarships to students of our local Greek community in honor of their pursuit of higher education. This continues their service in AHEPA’s mission of philanthropy, education and “defending Hellenism.”

In community engagement, the chapter has hosted an annual Pan-Hellenic Track Meet for over 43 years, with the participation of hundreds of children coming from the major local Greek Orthodox parishes in Delaware County. In philanthropy, they strive to continually support the community through donation-supports in various campaigns, and by also supporting families in need during the holiday season.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
