AHEPA Chapter #64 Volunteers for Holy Trinity Drive-Thru Fundraisers in PA

HARRISBURG, PA – While many Greek festivals across the country were canceled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, many communities have opted for drive-thru festivals. Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church of Harrisburg hosted a Drive-Thru Taste of the Greek Fest on two Fridays and Saturdays, September 18-19, and October 16-17.

The event was much appreciated by the people of the surrounding metropolitan Harrisburg area who could buy some of the delicious foods and pastries to-go that the Greek community offers at the annual Greek Festival.

AHEPA Chapter #64 was called upon to help with this endeavor, reaching out to their membership to ask for volunteers. Among the many brothers who participated in the event were Nick C. Mallios, Nick J. Mallios, Bob Moehler, and Ed Ward who worked diligently in preparing the gyros during both weekends. Many other brothers participated in the preparations and distributions of the gyros, dolmathes, spanakopita, Greek salads, and many pastries sold at the drive-thru events.

AHEPA Chapter #64 brothers who contributed in various capacities included Angelo Athanasatos, Anthony Ariano, Dr. Michael Billys, David Bobb, Sam Boutselis, John Harbilas, Bob Moeller, Nick C. Mallios, Nick J. Mallios, Nick Mallos, Christ Megoulas, Peter Megoulas, Basil Papoutsis, John Papoutsis, Jimmy Senos, George Spanos, Nick Stamos, Nick Theofanis, Hao Truong, Gregory Touloumes, Ed Ward, Dimitri Zozos, and  Paul Zozos.
