AHEPA District 6 Hosted Greek Heritage Day at Citi Field

FLUSHING, NY – AHEPA District 6 hosted Greek Heritage Day on April 13 at Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets. Over 600 friends and family of AHEPA were in attendance. The Greek Dance Troupe from Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church of Port Washington, NY, were spectacular and energized the crowd outside in the plaza. The Nisyrian Youth Dance Group performed traditional dances from Nisyros, wearing their traditional costume.

The Archdiocesan Cathedral Youth Choir, led by Maestro Costas Tsourakis, sang the National Anthem and the Greek Orthodox Scouts presented our countries’ colors. With 40,000 fans in attendance, the Kansas City Royals came away with the win over the Mets on Greek Heritage Day, which was also Dwight Gooden Bobble Head Day.
