AHEPA Chapter 495 Continues to Move Forward

WHITESTONE, NY – The brothers of AHEPA Andreas T. Stamboulidis Parthenon Chapter #495 gathered on August 18 outside of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Whitestone for a socially distanced meeting. This was the first in-person chapter meeting since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The newly elected chapter officers were introduced and congratulated. 

The brothers enjoyed tsipouro and mezedakia as they planned upcoming AHEPA events, both virtual and live, for the coming year. They also helped celebrate longtime Past Chapter President and Past District Governor Ted Stamas’ 60th birthday. The gathering took place observing all COVID-19 guidance and protocols.

AHEPA, founded in 1922, is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes with more than 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

AHEPA’s mission is to promote the ancient Hellenic ideals of education, philanthropy, civic responsibility, family and individual excellence through community service and volunteerism.
