HARRISBURG, PA – AHEPA Chapter #64 distributed turkeys throughout the Harrisburg, PA and Carlisle, PA area on December 14. To this point, $7,924 has been collected for the AHEPA Turkey Drive which includes the $4,950 collected in the memory of the members’ beloved brother John Sempeles, who passed away only two weeks ago.
