It is worth noting that the new U.S. Ambassador to Greece Tsunis, hails from the village of Platanos in mountainous Nafpaktia, from where he has rich childhood and adolescent summer memories. On June 4, during his official visit to Nafpaktos, he met with an AHEPA team consisting of the AHEPA-Hellas Athletic Director Adam Vlachogiannis, the chapter president Angelos Stavropoulos and members of the Board of the local AHEPA chapter. The ambassador was invited to attend the finals and present the awards to the winners and two souvenir sport t-shirts from last year’s event were given as a gift. The ambassador was impressed by the painting of the well-known surrealist painter from Nafpaktia, Artinopoulos, which was given as a gift by the local chapter of AHEPA to Ambassador Tsunis as a reminder of his roots.
